    Is there a way to place excel data into multiple text boxes?

    frederickg52832927

      I am editing a catalog with 100+ pages and I am trying to figure out a way to import or place text from Excel in a way that allows me to place the text of each cell into different text boxes of my choosing. When I try to import from excel, it imports the whole table into a single text frame.

       

      For comparison, when placing multiple images, one can choose what frame the image is dropped into. With each image placement, the upcoming image to be placed shows up near the cursor. This is a really handy way to place multiple images into many different frames. Is there a way to do this with text data from excel, where one can place each cell's data into a different text frame? Or will I have to copy and paste thousands of cells of data?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.
