Hi Wayne

I think the short answer to your question is "no.

I have generated Excel files external and independant of the Protel ddb and
imported (ie. not linked) them into the ddb environment.  Activating these
files from within the Protel environment is as "normal", however the
important difference is that it opens this file in (the real) Excel.

This is different to Protel generated Excel lookalike/wannabe spreadsheets.

You could generate your BOM in CSV format, export it from the ddb, import
the CSV BOM into Excel, save it as an XLS file, and import it back into the
ddb.

HTH
Brendon.
