Microsoft Query
Authored by: cgull on Dec 10, '02 09:30:19PM

As you may or may not be aware, Micro$oft released a Query tool for Excel, but it is lacking an ODBC client!!!! Losers!!! The Windows version has one! Anyhow, I'm a little miffed here...

I got the one working from OpenLink software that works well as in I can run SQL queries to my MySQL database running on my Linux server, but it's $495!!!! What's up with that?!!! (I'm running the 30 day demo)

Anyhow, I'm in the process now of downloading OpenOffice (ie. Sun's StarOffice) crossing my fingers that it has an ODBC client with it.

If anyone knows of a Freeware ODBC driver for OSX, that would make my day!
