    Using Excel data for graphs?


      I have a question about using Excel .xls files to generate graphs in Illustrator CS3 for the Mac.

      Has anyone used this workflow before?

      How well does the process actually work?

      How easy is it to change or update the chart by changing the data?

      Do you use just Illustrator's built-in capabilities? Or do you use any plug-ins? Or do you use completely different programs besides Illustrator and Excel?

      I've read the steps in Adobe Help and tried a couple of simple tests so I think I understand how it's supposed to work. I'd just like to know if it typically works smoothly for real-world users.
