Excel Workbook connections field "Last refreshed" always empty

Posted by: admin March 9, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

in Excel 2010, under Data-Connections where there is a list of all connections in the workbook, there is a field “Last Refreshed”. This field is always empty for me. Microsoft says (http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/excel-help/create-edit-and-manage-connections-to-external-data-HA010342379.aspx) “If blank, then the connection has never been refreshed”, but this is obviously not the case here, because we refresh the date quite often.

Any ideas please ?
Thanks Petr

… the “Last Refreshed” field is populated in the dialog box for the
connections that are used as data sources for pivot tables, BUT not
for connections that are used as the source for Tables. If the
connection is used as a source for a Table the “last refreshed”
section is empty

Sounds a bit like a missing feature to me…
