I have a workbook that feeds data from an access spreadsheet.
everything works awesome..... except

the workbook needs to be shared, when i share it i am unable to right click on the data from access and refresh ?, i have the possible option of using the auto refresh when workbook opens, but would like to try and avoid this

Any ideas, im using office 2011
