Changing ArcGIS Online Connection
Esri Maps for Office uses a connection to our ArcGIS Online “Organization” to retrieve data and perform analysis. If you enter the wrong url during setup (step 5 above), the add-in will not allow you to sign-in and therefore won’t work properly. Follow the steps below to change the ArcGIS Online connection in Excel.
