This is one way. It goes from Excel into AutoCAD.
I note I am not able to find the pastespecial on the new ribbon. I had to change my workspace to AutoCAD Classic. (There may be other ways)
Open your Excel spreadsheet.
Select the area you wish to paste into Autocad.
Right click and copy it to your clipboard.
Open your drawing file.
Perform a pastespecial. I use the "Paste" radio button with the "AutoCAD Entities" option.
This will insert an AutoCAD table.
If you wish you can explode it down to lines and text.
Hope this helps someone.
Super users are going to consider this a step back probably, but ti is fairly fast and easy.
