Is it possible to connect to a database  from Excel using JDBC instead of ODBC?  I'm connecting to Teradata from Excel.  I can use the ODBC connection but Microsoft updates are causing issues for our users.  Our jdbc drivers seem to work flawlessly via other programs.  I was wondering if there was a way to connect to a database via a jdbc driver from Excel (VBA?).
