The Macintosh Business Unit (MacBU) at Microsoft has released Query X, a Mac OS X-only product that lets you import data from databases into Excel X via Open Database Connectivity (ODBC).

You can use Query X to create new queries or refresh existing queries that were created in other versions of Excel, such as Excel 98, Excel 2001, and Excel for Windows. However, you can’t install Microsoft Query X unless you have the latest Office v.X update and a compatible ODBC driver installed. You can download Query and get more information about how it works from the Mactopia Web site.

To use the utility, you’ll need a Power Mac running Mac OS X 10.1 or later. Query is a 2MB download.
