Mike,

That's a good question. I have to look up the extensions in the Open
command and check this out.

Thanks,

FWIW, I'm not a DBA and don't even play one on TV... this is all pure
speculation based on no experience whatsoever.

Sounds as if you're working from the SQL side... does Excel offer the
option of opening the database rather than an individual table?
