Default Refresh Imported Data - Does the Excel file have to be open?

This probably sounds dumb - I have a spreadsheet that I have imported data
from an existing dsn/odbc, I set the properties to refresh every 24 hours
(1220 minutes), and on open. The file is going to be used for an orgchart in
another program that imports the data from excel. I am testing that
automation also, it has tasks that refresh the data from the excel file. What
I don't know is if the excel spreadsheet has to be open for the refresh to
occur? That is not a problem, so far, but not sure yet if I can refresh the
orgchart file if the excel file is open. The files will all be on a server
that is available 24/7. Thanks!
