Attribute blocks and data tables

Hi guys.

Please be friendly to a newby. 


I relativley new to using data tables in AutoCAD. I'm running 2013 and have been setting up attribute blocks for room areas on existing architectural floor plans that I am then exporting to xls tables and inserting a table in my drawing using the data extract function (apologies for that massivly loooong sentance).


This has been working fine, but the current drawing I am working on is throwing up problems. Every time I create an xls file it shows just one cell with 'delete me' in and does not insert a table into the drawing. I am using the table wizard in Annoatation and have used an existing data extract which I know works, and tried creating a new data extract (which I have had no problems with before either).


I have resaved the drawing, copied it into another blank file, purged it, shut down ACAD and restarted, cleared all data tables/extracts and started again and nothing is working (this is about the limit of my troublshooting skills). Does anyone know of a way I might resolve this?
