Select the Cells you want to copy in Excel (one print page at a time).

Then in AutoCAD use PASTESPEC command and decide which option you want to use to paste.

 

AKA: a spin on the old copy/paste you've always done in Windows

We can insert excel sheet into autocad using tables from draw menu. Table allows to link the excel spreadsheet, which helps to get live data on drawing. User can update the excel spreadsheet from autocad drawing.

i am using copy - and "paste special" comand - that creates a link to exel table, so when you make changes in exel table - it automatically changes in your autocad drawing. Very useful!!! you can type pastespec command or you can go to edit-paste special
