Can I use a spatial view to read excel data?

I have three separate Excel tables that I'm interested in joining/bringing into an SDE spatial view so that the data in the tables can be opened/viewed by all at the same time.  I'm wanting the data to update dynamically from the Excel tables, which is why I'm interested in using a spatial view.  I have three questions: 1)  Can a spatial view read non-SDE data (such as Excel tables saved on a network drive) 2)  How would I point the spatial join description/query to the location on the network drive if that is possible and 3) Is there a better solution for this altogether?
