Hi everyone

Is it possible to connect to an Access DB using ADO and then returing data from Access Queries into excel, or do I have to use DAO?

I've managed to connect through DATA|External Data in Excel(ODBC?), but I can't see any of the queries that are in the Access DB.

I am not sure what the DAO connection in VBA would look like or how I would run the Access queries to return the data? Would it make a difference if it was a crosstab query?

Thanks a mil
Cheers
Chris
