Adagio Tip of the Month: Creating a GV View from Excel

Sep 15, 2021

Question: How do I make File > New External an active choice, so that I can create a View from an Excel sheet? It is my understanding that GridView should allow me to attach to an Excel sheet.

I thought I could do this in GridView by selecting File > New External. However, no matter what I do, File > New External remains dim on my system, and I cannot select it.

Answer: Make sure that “Include External Tables” is enabled under Edit | Defaults. You should then be able to select this option as you expect.
