    Default Insert Excel into AutoCAD

    I've come to the end of my rope. I remember a year or so ago seeing a presentation on Acad 2005 and seeing a method that lets you insert an excel spreadsheet into cad such that it updates whenever the original .xls file updates. Have I lost my mind, or was this actually possible in some form? Can anyone give a tad bit of advice on how to accomplish this pretty please with sugar on top?

    Tim,

    You might try the forum search facility...

    To get you going in the right direction, take a look at the following thread (plus all links within) -

    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Back then, it must have been a 3rd party tool.
    Today, it's built into AutoCAD.
