Extend Excel
In Excel, you can do more than create and
maintain workbooks and worksheets. Through
data exchange, you can extend Excel in two
ways. First, you can use data from other
programs within Excel and thereby apply
Excel’s extensive worksheet capabilities to
other programs’ data. Second, you can use
Excel data within other programs, thereby
extending your ability to use, analyze, and
present your Excel data. This chapter focuses
on the many techniques for integrating Excel
with Word, PowerPoint, and Access; querying
Web sites; importing data; exporting data;
and querying Access databases from Excel.
Queries are a powerful database tool for
analyzing data sets. With minor changes,
you can extend the tasks in this chapter to
exchange data with corporate databases
based on Oracle, SQL Server, and other such
products.
Less known to Excel users are the query
features that enable you to query a Web site
within Excel. You can query a Web site and
import Web content into Excel. For example,
you can import statistics presented in HTML
tables.
You can create links from your worksheets
to other worksheets and other programs. For
example, you can use a link to open a related
workbook or a related Word document.
With queries, you can bring non-Excel data,
such as a Microsoft Access table, into Excel.
As you create a query, you can sort and filter
the data. Later you can analyze and chart the
data as you would any other worksheet data.
