    Linking a single Excel cell into an InDesign text block

    DaveMcQueenis

      I'm hoping to embed a single Excel cell into a text box and have that value change within the text box as the linked Excel file is updated. Imagine the following:   "... this is an important number 123456 and the text continues here..."


      So far I have been able to sucessfully change the preferences so that a linked Excel file is linked and can be updated, but that is a whole file, or range of cells in it's own table.

       

      Can I have JUST the text in the cell appear (with no discernable denotation of its attributes) within the block of static text and be linked to allow for updating in the Links panel?

       

       

      BTW why is it that sometimes only the first two columns appear in the table?

       

      Thanks everyone
