Another option to putting the style in your template, is to make a drawing with the style in it and insert as a block. Because of the way Autocad treats the excel cell merge formatting, I have a block with traditional autocad entities for the headers, then a linked table under it. (see attached image)

 

I found that you can create the datalink from a source, and then after the source file (xls) is removed, the link says that it can not find it. But if you put the same named file in the drawing path, the data link will find it. Kind of like a relative path. All you have to do is click in a cell, rt click, edit datalink, and it will find the new file in the current drawing path.

 

By default the cells are all locked, but a non-cad person can fill in the form, and when the file is updated, the notify bubble pops up and the cad user just has to pick on the bubble to update all datalinks. If the CAD person wants to modify a cell, they can unlock one or all, and make the change. Then rt click in a cell, and write to source file. Then the spreed sheet is updated.
