I have an Excel spreadsheet with 10 sheets containing tables
that are connected to my online SQL database. I need to email
the spreadsheet to someone so that it is still connected to the SQL database.

How do I do that?

    That would only work if the receiver of the email has Access to the SQL Server database as well. If the receiver is outside your company that's probably not desirable. You need to talk to the administrator of SQL Server about this. Also within your company not everybody might have access to the SQL database.
    If the receiver has access tot the database but get's an error message when refreshing the data it might be you are using an ODBC data source. The receiver of the mail has to create a datasource with the same name.
