A lot depends on what version of Excel. When I had Excel 2010, it was no problem. New computer now with Excel 2016.. The add-on is an issue because you can’t find a compatible one to install. I can’t remember the article I read, but one of the 2 sides decided to drop the add-on support. Now I have to go into the Client Access data transfer utility. I just use the SQL portion to create an output file, mainly CSV I tend to have better luck with.. That was the only option I fond so far.
