i've got a user that needs to build an excel workbook to aggregate data from another department. the source data is all in one excel file but the user in question (the aggregator) doesn't have permissions to the location of the source file (and i'd like to keep it that way)...anyone know of a way to have excel authenticate as a different person to get the info from the other workbook? or something that would allow the user to get to the data and process it without having to have permissions to the source?
