Has anyone else run into the following problem:
Using Excel 97, I have been able to create a query using Data -> Get External Data -> Create New Query.
But if, after having returned the data to Excel, I want to modify the query, using Data -> Edit Query does nothing.
(The message "Waiting for data to be returned from Microsoft Query" appears briefly in the Status Bar, but MS/Query does not launch).

This seems to be a problem ever since we installed the ODBC driver for the Oracle 8 database (8.01.66.00). The application is running on a P4, with Windows NT 4 SP6. This problem has appeared on a number of workstations using the same ODBC driver.

With respect to not being able to EDIT a query within Excel 97, we have tickets open with both Oracle and Microsoft, who have finally been able to reproduce this in the lab. We are still waiting for both firms to establish what needs to be corrected and for any patches to be made available.

Have you tried updating your Oracle ODBC driver to 8.01.07.00 in SQORA32.DLL dated 5/11/00?

I don't have that problem, and my machine matches your OS config and Office suite config, with the exception of your Oracle Driver being used.

Dear Friends,

Even i was getting the same error from months.
Also couldn't get any solution from most of the forums.

Finally i could debug it myself.

Error i Was Getting when trying to Get external data from new database query:
In the excel status bar it was showing "Waiting for data to be returned from microsoft Query" and the excel would hang.

Operating System Using : Windows XP
Microsoft Office Version : Office 2000
Oracle Database Using : Oracle 9i

Solution: (Am not sure if this works for every one, but no harm in trying)
1) Open a blank excel
2) Go to tools menu --> Click on Add-Ins
3) You would find MS Query Add-in and ODBC Add-in
4) Make sure to check the boxes against these 2 Add-Ins
5) Click OK and close the excel
6) Restart the system (Very important step)
7) Open a blank excel
Cool Go to Data menu --> Get External Data --> New Database Query
9) Within few seconds --> Choose Data Source window will pop up


Regards
Chandru Cool
