Results of Saved Searches can be saved into Excel sheets using a predefined template (see: Upload Saved Search Results Template). By default, when creating an Excel template sheet, values are not automatically updated. 

Example: I have created a series of Task Saved Searches for which I have created an Excel template to download the search results into. I have two additional worksheets in the xlsx file that perform some basic math on the search results data. I can upload the template and download the results, but the formulas on the additional worksheets will not update with values from the Search Results worksheet without forcing a manual update

This article describes how to automatically update values.


To automatically refresh data when a workbook is opened:

  1. Click any cell in the external data range.

  2. On the main menu's Data tab > Connections group, click the arrow next to Refresh and then choose Connection Properties.
