    Hi All, In Excel I have a worksheet (W1) that has a table (call it Table A) from Access in it.
    In Excel, another worksheet (W2) has cells which should show the values in the cells in Table A
    That works fine also until I use the Excel refresh data option for Table A.
    The Excel worksheet W1 has !REF errors, incorrect row heights and does not show the updated Table A .
    Does anyone else have this problem or know of a solution ?
    (It's the same problem in any other Office version I have tried)
    Thanks for your replies

    Well, I solved this after an exhaustive day working with Office Access and Excel.
    There are about 7 complicated changes you must make to get the Data links to work.
    One big mistake I made was not saving a table after I changed it.
    If you don't do that, the Access->Excel exports just return the old data.
