    Importing access file into excel is not creating a link to that file

    I have office 365. I am trying to import access file into excel. i went to data-get data-from data base-from microsoft database and import. But it is not creating a link to the access file which is what I need. What do i do to have a link to that file

    When you import data you do not get a link.
    When you link data then you get a link
    I do not have Office 365 but my guess is that it works the same way.
    You can either link to the ms access database or you actually really import.
    The first option will refresh on demand the second you have to redo the import every time
