Plotting to what? Using what driver?

What does "not correctly imported" mean?

Seems to work just fine here, see attached and a PDF print test.

My English is BAD too but I can see your question as you wanted to PLOT the excel when it pasted into your Autocad.

 

"i want to import my excel table to autocad. but when i try to do this, the table is not corretcly import. im using paste special command and past to link. if i paste my file excel, image and other formats, i can not plot my draw. i attach my excel file."

Your add-on may be the problem then: attached is your file and a PDF print of it, works fine here. If there are errors in your table, I don't have the time to read each line, you will have to describe the problem better.

 

So what are you plotting to that it does not work? Your posts remain light on details.

sorry for my bad english. if i past excel file to my draw it seems good and good seen print preview. but when i try to plot it  (i mean print my draw)  with hp designjet 500 plotter and its failing. excel file is not printing. only lines and draws printing. after that i found an addon and import excel file printing successfully done.

 

note: im printing minimum 4mt draw with scale (ex:4000x450 mm, 8257x620 mm etc.). because of this i dont create pdf file. i can not meausure and scale my draw in pdf.

 

so my question is how i can import attached excel file correctly (like addon makes) using past special command and choosing autocad entities.

 

my plotter has 192mb ram.

Your HP500 driver may be the problem, nothing else: test on your end by plotting to PDF and DWF (which can be set to output full size as you wish), and test on other printers.

 

If needed, you can print the PDF or DWF to your HP500 driver while you wait for someone to offer a fix for your HP500.
