Sure. Works exactly the same as normal text.
Only exception is that you cannot split table cells across frames.
You can also add headers and footers which will appear automatically on every page.
...but could you explain how you're doing it please?
It doesn't seam to be working for me.
Just to clarify, I need one table split over multiple pages. So as an example if I have an Excel table that has 4 colomns and 100 rows.
But my indesign document with 4 pages, each page has a table on it with 4 columns and 25 rows. What are the steps I need to do to link the tables?
What are you getting at here? You say you want it to flow and it sure sounds like that’s what it’s doing.
haha... I don't know how else to explain it to be honest. I'll try again
Lets say I have set up a indesign document with 4 pages. Each indesign page has a table on it with 4 colomns and 25 rows.
I have been supplied with an Excel document that has a table with 4 columns and 100 rows.
I'd like to link the four indesign tables together, so when I copy and paste the Excel tables contents in the first table on my indesign document to will flow across all four pages.
Create an InDesign file with a Primary text frame which will be by default on the master page. Flow your excel text into the first document page and as many pages as needed will be created with all of the text as a single text thread. Select all of the text and under the Table menu choose Convert Text to Table. Enter in the number of columns you want and style the table as needed.
I would simply use the file>place command, browse to the Excel file making sure to show options. Choose formatted or unformatted table depending on your needs and then shift click on the first page to auto flow the table.
If you’re going to need to update the information in the table, choose to link text and spreadsheet files in your preferences. Get familiar with table/cell styles as well.
Ok I've got it!! Thank you everybody.
I was doing a rookie error when pasting in. Doh!
I wasn't highlighting the full table across all pages so the info was flowing in correctly. **cringe**
My sanity is now restored.
