Hi Experts,

I would like to execute an Oracle sql in Excel 2010 using ODBC.  Connection to the database works but I am not sure how to run the script.

Example script:
===========
SELECT 
'This is a test', Name
api.functioncall('&val1','&val2','&val3') value1,
api.functioncall2('&val1','&val2','&val3') value2,
(select somevalue from someview where field1 = '&val1' and field2 = '&val2' and field3 = '&val3') value3
FROM DUAL

Open in new window

===============

The results should then populate the worksheet.

Thanks in advance.
