Hi there, I have figured out how to link Excel documents to tables in InDesign, but is there a way to add additional rows to the tables in InDesign? If I do that, whenever the Excel link is updated, it deletes the new rows I've added.
We have data that goes in the cells below the linked table and it needs to be in the table so that they'll resize automatically when longer or shorter data is pulled in (vs. just being a totally separate text box/table outside of the linked one).
Hi, yes, I did add blank rows but the difficulty is that for each instance (20+) the cells below vary, and are also "tagged" with variable data tags (so it brings in outside data via an xml feed) so that's only done in InDesign and not in excel... Therein lies my dilemma. Ideally if I could be "free" about what text, cells, etc. I can put in below the linked cells, that'd be lovely.
But the links won't work in a table already created in InDesign - they only seem to work when you place the original table link from Excel. Is there a way to place a linked Excel table INTO a table in InDesign? I haven't succeeded in that... please advise! Thanks!!
