For whatever the reason, it can be very efficient to create a data link and display the data in a drawing. When the Microsoft Excel driver is used, data source tables are opened as read-only by default, and can be opened by only one user at a time.In addition, you can also use ADO to access Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) compliant databases.If you are a scripter with a modest understanding of database connectivity, you will find ADO's command syntax uncomplicated and easy-to-use.Even though tables have read-only status, however, applications can perform insertions and updates for Microsoft Excel tables.When an application performs a Save As command on Microsoft Excel data through the Microsoft Excel driver, the application should create a new table and insert the data to be saved into the new table. No other operations can be performed on the table until it is closed and reopened.
With a very minimalistic user interface, users can focus on making changes to the table's data: The Edit Data feature allows users to edit a My SQL Table's data directly within the Excel spreadsheet the data was imported into, optionally the generated queries can be reviewed before pushing the changes back to the My SQL Server or users can configure to skip that review step and push changes as soon as they are typed in.Microsoft Word is great for working on documents—but not so great with tables.If you want to put a table into a Microsoft Word document, you can work with Word’s built-in table tools, or you can insert data directly from Excel. Getting your Excel data into Word is easy, makes it look better, and automatically updates. Let’s take a look at how to get that data from one app to another. If you include an embedded Excel object and change data in the Excel sheet you copied it from, no changes will be applied. A linked Excel object will update to reflect changes in the original Excel sheet.Once the table is closed, no subsequent insert can be performed because the table is then a read-only table.It is possible to update values when using the Microsoft Excel driver, but a row cannot be deleted from a table based on a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, so updates are not considered officially supported by the Microsoft Excel driver.For example, if you discovered that there was an error in the order quantity, you could change it.
