Question: Workbooks versus file read and storage


    I am regularly using tabled data for things like material properties, or other tabled look-up data from induustry or custom datasets.

    I have not used workbooks within Maple and yet see that exel files or other data sets can be "connected(?)" in the workbook tree.  Is this helpful?

    What is the best practice view of connecting to DB data and looking up variables that repeat project to project or worksheet to worksheet - without pulling into memory the full datasets for each ref call?

All thoughts appreciated.   

P.S., Tables vs. dataframes are a slight confusing matter also.  The access to the cell info seems different based on dataframe/table/matrix type.  I have no problems with matrix element access.
