Accessing spreadsheets

Accessing a spreadsheet is also very similar to accessing a dBase database.

  1. Select File > New > Database.
  2. Select Connect to an existing database. Select Spreadsheet as the Database type.
  3. Click Browse to locate the spreadsheet you want to access. If the spreadsheet is password protected, check the Password required box. Click Next.
  4. If the spreadsheet requires a user's name, enter it. If a password is also required, check its box. Click Next.
Image:documentation_caution.pngThis method of accessing a spreadsheet does not allow you to change anything in the spreadsheet. All modifications must be made in the spreadsheet itself. This method only allows you to view the contents of the spreadsheet, run queries, and create reports based upon the data already entered into the spreadsheet.
