Perfect. At least now I can get data into a spreadsheet.

Next I need to work out calling stored procedures and passing user
parameters to the SP as well as automated updating (on open and on
parameter changing).

These are probably macro based rather than UI.


Thank you for your reply though. Very useful.

I know at least 3 methods.

1) Simple method:
 Add a parameter query to the "Base document":
SELECT * FROM "Table" WHERE "A" = :param_A AND "Date" BETWEEN :From_Date AND :Until_Date

Named parameters are unquoted alphanumeric and start with a colon.
Drag that query into your sheet.
When you access/refresh the parameter query you will be prompted for substitution.

2) Add a small filter table to the database, add a criteria input form to the spreadsheet and bind it to one particular record of the filter table. The user enters the criteria into the form and refreshes the import range which is bound to: SELECT "D".* FROM "Data" AS "D", "Filter"AS "F" WHERE "Filter"."RowID"=0 AND "D"."A" = "F"."INT_A" AND "D"."Date" BETWEEN "F"."D1" AND "F"."D2"

3) A generic macro of mine which binds an import range to a changing SQL string (not possible in the GUI). For simplicity and better customization the macro reads the SQL from a named cell.
