  1. Click the search icon, and select Data Source. Choose your linked sources.

    select sources view
  2. Do a search using columns from the linked sources.

  3. Test the result, to make sure it’s what you expect.

    If your search shows no data found or doesn’t look right to you, it is possible that one of the links between your sources was made on the incorrect column. Check the relationships you created and try linking using a different column, to see if that gives the expected search results.

  4. When you have the expected answer, you can create a worksheet to make it easier for you and other people to use. To do this, click Data.
