I have an excel spreadsheet with data that was inserted into a table from an ODBC source. Everything works fine until I use a criteria to filter the data. I am able to return the results the first time with the criteria filter, however when I then attempt to change criteria value or field I have issues.
I right click on the table in excel and select table, then edit query, and I am given a message from Microsoft Query stating "This query cannot be edited by the Query Wizard". If I press OK the Microsoft Query screen opens without the tables section on the top of the view, and all of the options to add a table or criteria from the drop down menus are greyed ou, and the toolbar buttons are unresponsivet. I am unable to edit the query.
Does anyone know of a solution to this issue? At the moment each query has to be recreated each time I need to change the criteria.
