Subject Excel Problem again
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2001 20:24:29 GMT
There doesn't seem to be a lot of requests about this problem that I am

I have an Excel file (called ULSExcel in the odbc source) as a default file.
I was able to change it so that when i copy the default file to a new file

"ULSExcel;dbq=" + excelFile + ";DriverID=22;READONLY=false"

Thanks to anyone who can help me out.
