spreadsheets - VW to ACAD and back

Recommended Posts

Has anyone worked out a method to move spreadsheets around between VW and ACAD?

VW to ACAD - It took a while to understand that Excel runnning inside ACAD only displays 1 page at a time, regardless of file size. So, the file (if originating in Excel) has to be broken into 1 pg bites for import into ACAD.

ACAD back to VW - If the information has been brought into ACAD as an Excel spread sheet, a .dwg import into VW doesn't bring the spreadsheet along. Is there a way to "demote" the embedded spreadsheet (like convert PIO to group), so VW finally sees it as simple text or bitmap, or other?

Thanks for any ideas,
