Connect a SQL Server database to your workbook

Last week I shared the ODBC connection method for connecting SQL Server data to Excel.  Now that you’ve mastered the intricacies of that technique, I want to share a simpler method.

You can use the Data Connection Wizard to create a dynamic connection between a SQL Server database and your Excel workbook.

This type of connection is read-only  —  you cannot update any data in the database from your workbook.

Here is a link to the article:
