I&#039;ve been using DNSless connections for Access databases up to this point when using ASP. Now, however, I need to use an Excel spreadsheet and I&#039;m not quite clear on the strings required to access a spreadsheet. This is what I&#039;ve been using for Access:<BR><BR>mySQL="select machinenumber, application, version from software order by application, version"<BR><BR>set conn=server.createobject("adodb.connection")<BR>&# 039; myDSN="Win2k-Presurvey"<BR>myDSN="DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ="&server.mappath("Win2k-Presurvey.mdb")<BR>conn.open myDSN<BR>set rstemp=conn.execute(mySQL)<BR><BR>My follow up question is that the above mySQL statement retrieves data from Access, but again, how do I refer to columns in Excel on a specific spreadsheet?<BR><BR>Can anyone help me out here. This is new ground for me.<BR><BR>Morgan
