Excel linked to ODBC

Is it possible to have a spread sheet linked via a ODBC to the AS400's DB2?

Then when I press a refresh Button (a macro to fire off the odbc connection and update records)
the spreed sheet connects the link and pulls the data in.

I know I will have to map the feilds somehow too...

Open the excel sheet go to data tab and click on the get external data.
select the ODBC which you need to configured and pass the query to it.
