Add Column from External Database in Excel 2010

I have created a connection using the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle. After deleting several columns (from the Excel table created from the connection), I realized that I needed one of the deleted columns. Is there anyway to add the column to the table?

AFAIK and I could be wrong but You will have to recreate the connection.

On the Table Tools menu click refresh->Connection Properties.
In the Definition tab it should list the command text which you should be able to modify to get the column back.

You could also use the 'Edit Query' command, but you'll probably have to add it to the ribbon manually (I have it in mine, hit 'Customize Ribbon' go to 'All Commands').

This worked and it didn't overwrite the new columns I manually added to the table. Perfect!!
