    importing data to Illustrator...and other question


      My first question is about importing chart data into Illustrator. I've tried it (converted it to .txt document) but I'm still having problems. Is there something else I need to do?


      Also, I will be imported the chart into InDesign. This may be a little confusing, but stick with me....


      Original data in Excel...that's imported into Illustrator.

      Illustrator chart is created.

      I import Illustrator chart into InDesign.

      If original data in Excel is changed/updated and document is saved, will that update in Illustrator and thus change the chart?

      If it does, does that then update the link to InDesign?


      This would be so fabulous is that trail that I just described really worked so please someone make my day!!!
