The Excel function: SQL.REQUEST
Connects with an external data source, and runs a query from a worksheet. SQL.REQUEST then returns the result as an array without the need for macro programming. If this function is not available, you must install the Microsoft Excel ODBC add-in program (add-in: A supplemental program that adds custom commands or custom features to Microsoft Office.) (XLODBC.XLA). You can install the add-in from the Microsoft Office Web site.
