Idw files and xls insertion

Hello


When I insert an xls file in a drawing (idw or dwg), I do not see all the contents of the xls file.
I have the same problem with copy paste excel spreadsheet control.
The problem is the same on different. I think there is a size limit for OLE objects in Inventor .
Someone he already encounter this problem?

 

thanks

Is your excel file you are inserting an .xls or an .xlsx file?  The software will only allow you to insert an .xls file.

Is this spread sheet you are inserting one that cannot be created using a general table?

Using a general table would be the cleanest way to do this if possible.
