Refresh Google spreadsheet

I have created an excel file and created a database connection from the excel file to connect to an Oracle database and run a query on it. So when I click on Data->Refresh all, it connect to the database and refreshes the tabs with recent data.
Is there any way to publish this excel file as a Google document and set an interval to the refresh process so that the Google document remains refreshed automatically every hour or so(depending on the refresh frequency)?

To start, to to your excel spreadsheet and click on Data, then Import External Data, then Data Range Properties, then check the box that says "Refresh every" and enter the number of minutes you want for the refresh interval in the window to the right, and click okay. Next, on the File menu, click Save as Web Page. Click Publish. Under Item to publish, click what you want to publish in the Choose box (most likely just the spreadsheet). Check the Add interactivity with: box and select Spreadsheet functionality in the drop down window to the right (Note - if you don't want viewers altering the webpage, do not check the "Add interactivity with:" box).  You can then add a title to the web page by clicking on Change and entering the name in the next window.
Next to the File name box, click Browse, and locate the drive, folder, Web folder, Web server, or FTP location where you want to save or publish your Web page. To view the Web page in your browser after you publish it, select the Open published Web page in browser check box. Then select the AutoRepublish every time this workbook is saved check box. Click Publish.
To be honest, I have not done the web page portion of this, but have used the "Refresh every" function on the spreadsheet and it works quite well, especially when monitoring the status of some type of loading process that can take a long time. Good luck.
