About Linking a Table to External Data

A table can be linked to data in a Microsoft Excel (XLS, XLSX, or CSV) file. You can link to an entire spreadsheet, individual row, column, cell, or cell
range in Excel.

NOTE:

Microsoft Excel must be installed to use Microsoft Excel data links. To link to the
XLSX filetype, Microsoft Excel 2007 must be installed.

You can bring data from Microsoft Excel into a table in the following three ways:

  • As formulas with supported data formats attached.
  • As calculated data from formulas calculated in Excel (supported data formats not attached).
  • As calculated data from formulas calculated in Excel (with data formats attached).

A table that contains data links displays indicators around linked cells. If you hover
your cursor over the data link, information about the data link is displayed.

If a linked spreadsheet has been changed, such as adding a row or column, the table
in your drawing can be updated accordingly using the DATALINKUPDATE command. Likewise,
if a change is made to a table in your drawing, then you can update the linked spreadsheet
using the same command.

By default, a data link is locked from editing to prevent undesired changes to the
linked spreadsheet. You can lock cells from data changes, format changes, or both.
To unlock a data link, click Locking on the Table ribbon contextual tab.
