Default Pivot Table with MS Access as DataSource

Hello all. Thanks for the help in advance.

I am trying to use a UNC to pull data from a MS Access database as a
external datasource for a pivot table in MS Excel 2003. I can actively pull
the data, since I have a network drive mapped to the location, but others who
have the drive mapped to another letter are unable to open the document and
refresh.

I am trying to figure out the best way to create this pivot table utilizing
the shared network UNC. Please help!

Regards,

Me

Hello,

I would use a SQL query to pull the data out of the Access db. Then
everyone can push data into the Access db, you can refresh your Excel
spreadsheet and get the latest data.

Search for something like 'Create, edit, and manage connections to external
data' in Excel help for instructions on how to connect to the external data.
