We have a split MS Access database, where the backend resides on a shared network drive, which is updated by ~40 users daily. This works well, however to extract data and report on it, we are trying to import this data into Excel as Access' reporting can't deliver what we need.
I have successfully set up a data connection in Excel, to link to the backend Access database, lookup a query and import this data into excel. The query is a simple lookup on a few tables, no grouping, no parameters, and works on my pc. However when I send this spreadsheet to anyone else they can't refresh it, and receive an error saying the database can't be found. If i try to setup a connection on their pc, the database file can be linked to, but most queries don't appear in the list to link to, including the query I need, but I can link to a table.
Being on a corporate network, all of our PCs are basically the same, with the same access. I'm not sure if there's a setting to change or another better way of doing this?
