    VERY, VERY strange table/excel/import issue - help please

    Jay-KeepOnKeepinOn Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I've encountered a troubling issue when importing data tables into InDesign from Excel. These are standard workbooks with named tabs. The value "-1.0" will not import into InDesign; it refuses. If I manually go into the Excel file and change the cell containing the value in question from "Number" to "Text" it will import, but this isn't scalable or possible when monthly reporting comes through and dozens of tables are flowed in automatically.

       

      Is this a know bug? I can't seem to find any details online.

       

      Help?

      THANK YOU
