    Import Excel with charts and keep text content

    Alex Filippov Level 1

      I'm developing solution based on InDesign Server and need to import excel document containing chart and text content to InDesign doc.

      I haven't found any way to import it and still have a capability to work with text content. Most threads suggest two practice:

           1. export document to pdf/eps and import

           2. copy\paste chart using the clipboard alone from the other content

      Neither way is sutable for me.

      Is there any solution, from indesign or third-party, that allows me to import excel file with text content and keep charts available for high-resolution printing. I.e. charts could be vector images or high-quality raster.

      Complication is I need it in script for InDesign Server without any clipboard or selection. Also, Office COM-model isn't suitable because of server and multi-thread limitations.
