Using External data in pivot tables


Posted by Erwin Manlapaz on August 10, 2001 9:01 AM

My pivot tables are currently setup to access an external db. Is there a way that I can move the db to a new location and/or change the name of the db without having to redo my entire pivot table? In other words, how do I change where the pivot table is pointing to for its data?

Thanks.

Aren't you using Microsoft's ODBC Administrator?

Mark,

I'm using Excel's Query Wizard which accesses the data via an ODBC connection. The problem is I've never played with the ODBC administrator and I don't want to screw something up. Is there a within the administrator to solve my dilemma? Thanks in advance.
