    Hi,
    Does anyone know how to link an excel spreadsheet to an access query so that the worksheet is updated each time the query is run?
    Thanks.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi RoyUK,
    I tried doing that, but it did not yield the results I needed of it or maybe I am not aware of the correct way to use the external data link. what I need is something that will automatically sync data with an access query when the .xls file is opened.
