I am using a link to an .xls worksheet to populate a General Table in my .idw (Inventor 2012). See attached. The blank space underneath the first lines of information will always be blank, no matter how many rows we get. Is there a way to have the drawing hide the blank/empty cells, make the borders invisible, etc?
I have tried using the Insert Object for an Excel file instead of using the Table feature, but it does not appear to be an updatable link. As in, if I change data in my .xls file, it won't update the inserted object to the same info.
Thanks in advance!
I doubt it..
If you use paste special and check the "link" box it will work just fine without using Inventors crappy general table functionality. And you can hide the gridlines in excel too.
Why does the inserted object have such terrible quality in the .idw?
Even when I print to PDF it looks terrible.
Its always looked crappy in the IDW.. But its always fine when I print to PDF or a paper printout
