    17. 17. Web Queries <ul><li>The Web query is most often associated with a database management system. </li></ul><ul><li>An Excel Web query is very similar, but instead of using SQL and a relational database, you use the Web as your database. </li></ul><ul><li>Excel allows you to specify the data source and the criteria that must be met. </li></ul><ul><li>As with a database query, the information displayed by the query can be updated without recreating the query. </li></ul>
