This video explains how to update existing data in an Excel workbook using SQL UPDATE statements. You'll learn how to assign a simple value to a column, how to calculate a new value to produce a different result for each row, and how to update information in one worksheet using information stored in a different worksheet. The final part of the video discusses how to import data from a separate workbook using a SELECT INTO statement and then use the imported data to update existing data.
