i am currently tracing hand drawn drawings in vectorworks by importing tiff files. I have some window and door schedules to do (for those not familair, basically a huge table of numbers and descriptions) Is there an easy way to create a table in vectorworks, so the end product looks neat. Manually putting in all the numbers and text will result in a messy drawing. Or is it possible to import something created in a program such as excel?

Any help would be appreciated

Or you could create a text entity, perhaps consisting of just a hyphen, and set its horizontal and vertical alignment to "center", and then rectangular-array it, perhaps inside a group. Then use the Text tool to change each hyphen to the data for that box. That makes a very neat table that's easy to control. For example, adjust column width by grabbing whole columns and moving them over.
