There a way using ClosedXML API to modify data source connection string.

See this example where OpenXML is used to get this goal.

That's not supported at the moment. No ETA either.

Ok, thanks.

Think about it, it is very useful in sharepoint excel service base deployment scenario.

Could you create a work item about this?

I'll give it a second look but please don't get your hopes up. You should use this library for the features it has now, not the ones that may or may not be implemented.

Ok, I understand you.

But this library is "The easy way to OpenXML", isn't it?

OpenXML allow modify the connections "in a non easy way".

I just think that I'm requesting a feature in the right place?

Sorry, if I miss understood to goal of this project.

What you're missing is that this is not my job, I do this on my spare time. And even if this was my full time job I wouldn't be able to work on every single request.

So I try to improve the library as I can.
