Hello, I am new here and not a very good excel user. I was given the task of creating a live update board for job status. The board updates every 5 min. It seem to work fine for 20 hours or so then I get the {Microsoft}{ODBC driver for Oracle}{Oracle} error. The updates stop and I must close the excel and reopen. It will than work for another day before the error comes back. So, is this an excel, Oracle or ODBC issue? Any ideas?
