Returns or sets connection information for a PivotTable cache.
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.dll)
The Connection property can be one of the following: OLE DB settings that enable Microsoft Excel to connect to an OLE DB data source, ODBC settings that enable Microsoft Excel to connect to an ODBC data source, a URL that enables Microsoft Excel to connect to a Web data source, the path to and file name of a text file, or the path to and file name of a file that specifies a database or Web query.
Setting the Connection property doesn’t immediately initiate the connection to the data source. You must use the Refresh method to make the connection and retrieve the data.
For more information about the connection string syntax, see the Add method of the PivotCaches collection.
Alternatively, you may choose to access a data source directly by using the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) library instead.
