Cell Formating Height and Width From Excel to Autocad

Please Help! I've created a data link, linked to my autocad drawing, checked the box to keep excel formatting and update.  Once i Import the table, the size of the table is NOTHING like what the size is in excel.

 

I have my page layout in excel to be 11 x 17 landscape.  I have my table at about 9 1/4 x 15 landscape. Once I import it into autocad, it is now about 6 3/8 x 20 1/4. I don't know what i'm doing wrong but i need it to transfer just like it is in excel as far as the size of it.  Anyone have any ideas?!

I've ran into this problem a few times, and the only solution I have came up with is to adjust the cells in AutoCAD.

 

You can change the cell width and height in the properties. Just hightlight the ones you want to change.

I was hoping that wasn't the answer.  Im trying to create a template for our group to use along the the excel. I guess if i fixe it the way i want it in th template, if they do a "save as" the table size will stay the same.

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

anyone else have any other solutions?
