I am very used to using the JET DB engine in VBA with ADODB to query worksheets using SQL in Excel 2003.  However, the query always referenced sheets in one workbook at a time.  Is it possible to open two connections to two different workbooks and perform a join between two sheets in the different workbooks?  If so, how would I qualify the reference in the SQL query?
