That worked fine the other day, but seems to be moofing today for some reason I keep getting an **"Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 3, Invalid object name 'o'." error The complete code I'm using is: USE [Boats] --select * from [dbo].[Groups] as o --SELECT * -- FROM [dbo].[Groups$] as i ------ WHERE ID is null; GO INSERT INTO o SELECT i.* FROM [dbo].[Import Grp] i LEFT JOIN [dbo].[Groups] o ON o.

When you import data from an external data source into your workbook, you can choose to keep the data as is, to capture a point in time for further analysis, or you can update the data from the source whenever you choose.
