    Default Broken OLE link

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've got some panel schedules on an electrical schedule sheet that I need to edit from an outside source that are OLE objects - the problem is I don't have the original linked documents(excel spreadsheets I believe).

    Any way to convert these files to editable Autocad or Excel files so i can make some minor changes?

    The easiest way is to ask your outside person if they can send you the file. If not you will have to recreate the OLE in excel.

    That's what we ended up doing, but man it would be sweet if anyone could find a way to convert these files.
