Hello Framers,

I have had considerable sucess using FrameScript to import Excel data into 
FrameMaker. Here is a workflow example:

1) Put the insertion point in a paragraph.

2) Choose FrameScript > Import Table. You will be prompted for a spreadsheet 
file (*.xls).

3) You will be prompted with a list of all the worksheets in the 
spreadsheet. Select the one you want to insert.

The data is inserted in a fully-formatted FrameMaker table. You can continue 
to edit and update the data in Excel. To update the corresponding FrameMaker 
tables, you choose FrameScript > Update Tables and all of the tables are 
updated with the latest spreadsheet data.

This is only one example of what can be done; the process can be automated 
further. If you have any interest in an Excel to FrameMaker workflow, please 
contact me offlist with your specific requirements. Thank you very much.
