How to link Excel to SQL Server View...

Last Modified: 2020-09-30
...so that the spreadsheet keeps the sort order specified in the View? I see the warning message SS gives about "sorting the query of the View", but I don't see where to do that.

In the Connection Properties, I tried changing the Command Type to "SQL" and the Command Text to "SELECT MyView.*... ORDER BY MySort1, MySort2", but then SS gave me an error message about that no longer matching the odc, and it would be deleted.

Thanks in advance
