    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is it possible to get an excell table into , and successfully print out in AutoCAD Lt 2000. I can get the table in but the print out looks very pony. I am now drawing too many planting tables to mention. Any ideas?

    Yes, wouldn't it be great if that worked perfectly every time. You're not the first person to come across this one. There does seem to be a problem with Excel OLE objects and AutoCAD and the problems usually occur at the printing stage. I guess the easiest way round it is to export your Excel file to a space delineated format and then import the resulting text file using MTEXT. Obviously you'll need to use a monospaced font in order to maintain all the columns but it does work.

    I also have a feeling that this problem may have been resolved in more recent versions of AutoCAD LT. Anyone out there using LT 2002 who can confirm this?
