i have used external data sources for a pivot table, however I need to trace them, the question is How?
 

Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

One way I do this is to import the data into Excel using MS Query, and then base the Pivot tables on the query. That way, the datasource is available for viewing at all times.
