    How can you link excel to an already existing table cell in InDesign?

    Les6 Level 1

      I have been linking microsoft excel documents to InDesign in an attempt to make updating repetitive items more automated. We use this so that every time the excel file is updated, the InDesign document will be updated as well automatically. Is it possible to use excel linking (I have been placing the excel document in InDesign and selecting certain excel cells to link to) to place certain excel cells into existing table cells in InDesign? I have only been able to link an excel document to InDesign by creating a new table in InDesign and then formatting it or placing the formatted excel file into InDesign. I have been unable to figure out how to link excel to an InDesign table or cell that already exists. Thanks for your help!
