Harold/Les, You're missing a step somewhere. 1. Word file, one keyword to a line. 2. Save as .txt file. 3. Open .txt in Frame. 4. Select all keyword lines. 5. Table > Convert para to table.... 6. Select one column 7. Convert. Clean up if necessary (remove tabs, extra characters, etc.) 8. Select the column. Copy. 9. In the IXGen table, add enough rows to hold the new keywords. 10. Click in the first empty row. Paste. If paste options are available, select Replace existing cells.
That's it.
