 problem with calling stored procedure from excel

I have an excel workbook that is used to do complex calculations using macros. It is very slow in VBA and I want to move the heavy lifting to SQL. I need to pass inputs from Excel into SQL. I can use an OPENROWSET query in SQL to read in the data, but when I try to call that same query from the excel workbook containing the data, the connection times out. If I put the data into a separate excel file and instead pass that file path to the stored procedure, it works just fine. Does anyone know how to resolve this conflict?
