Access to External Data

  • Michael Kofler


In this chapter we discuss how to access data stored in an external database system from within Excel. There are essentially two ways to accomplish this: One is to use the wizard provided for this purpose, which in turn calls the program MS Query. (This form of data importation can be controlled via the QueryTable object.) The alternative is to use the new ADO library, which provides a host of objects for reading and editing data.
