Excel table in drawing is not updating

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I inserted a table from excel to autocad with copy-edit/paste special/paste link/microsoft excel worksheet(code) and everything seems to work nice until I closed the excel. After that no automatic updates to cad files.

Do you know why, and how can I fix that?

 

Thank you.

 

PS: I checked the properties of the excel table and it is linked.

I would use DATALINK instead. More robust in both options and functionality, and can be bi-directional.

Are your links set to update automatically MENU-EDIT-OLE LINKS the dialogue should show the linked excel file location, but can be set to update manualy

Yeah, don't close excel

 

If the cad file is closed, and the excell file is modified, saved, and closed, the cad file should be updated next time it is opened.

 

If excel is not open, then the excel file won't be changed, so why would it update? Is someone else is updating the file?
