    AutoCAD Remove Excel link, but keep the table? (Embed excel table)

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello! I have searched around and I can't find a direction to head in...

    We have a whole bunch of spreadsheets that we use for calculations and parts of those spreadsheets are linked to a ton of CAD Drawings via data links.

    We would like to be able to deliver the CAD drawings to the client without having to send our calculation books (just the output tables). In other words, is it possible to embed the table data and remove the excel link for the final delivery?

    Thank you guys for you time.

    Take care,
    Seth

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    AFAIK, if you send them out without the Excel file, the info remains as last updated. You might want to double check, but I'm 85% sure that is correct.

    If you right click in a cell there is an option to detach data link.
