Hi John,
Thanks for writing in our forums!
Importing data in MySQL for Excel means what the name implies, importing a snapshot of the data at the moment the action takes place.
The spreadsheet will not update automatically, you need to keep it in sync by re-importing.

If that is what you need you will have to go the standard data source way in Excel through ODBC and create a connection and a data source to the MySQL database. Not sure that will update the data after closing and reopening the spreadsheet but you may give it a try.

Best Regards.
