Databases "You might be surprised to know that you can connect Excel to a database, and this isn't limited to databases running Microsoft's SQL. Excel can connect to practically any mainstream database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and others), provided that the database offers an ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity) driver. In this article, you'll learn how to connect MySQL to Excel."
