ODBCConnection Object (Excel)

Represents the ODBC connection.

Version Information

Version Added: Excel 2007


An ODBC connection can be stored in an Excel workbook. When Micrososft Excel opens the workbook, Excel creates an in-memory copy of the ODBC connection known as the ODBCConnection object.

An ODBCConnection object contains information related to the connection, such as the name of the server to connect to and the name of the objects to be opened on that server. Optionally, the ODBCConnection object may also include authentication credential information, or a command that is to be passed to the server and executed (for example, a SELECT statement to be executed by SQL Server).
