The Impact of Microsoft Office Importer
Microsoft Office Importer saves you valuable time by automatically managing the hundred little things that have to go right.

What About Header Rows in Your Excel Paste?
Did you watch the video above? Did you see how effortlessly Microsoft Office Importer can split your gigantic spreadsheets to fit perfectly inside your CAD borders? So that leaves the question: What about your header rows? You need them repeated all over the place now. No problem! Microsoft Office Importer handles this for you automatically.
Okay, But What About Really Huge Excel or Word Pastes?
If you’ve ever tried to get a tall Excel or Word paste into a short space, you know the trouble. In fact, in talking with some new customers, we found that one of the tasks that was taking the longest was trying to make tall pastes fit inside their DGN or DWG borders.
These CAD users would manually split up tall data into multiple pastes. Trying to do this is both time-consuming and frustrating. Simply changing text size is almost never an option as the text must be readable in the plot and almost always must follow a CAD standard that dictates the text size.
Fortunately, for Microsoft Office Importer owners, this isn’t an issue.
Microsoft Office Importer has a feature called “split paste into columns”. Now, when you go to put a tall paste into your MicroStation or AutoCAD file, Microsoft Office Importer automatically and intelligently splits your paste into multiple columns so that it fits nicely into the allotted space.
Don’t confuse these columns in the design file with Excel’s columns — the paste that Microsoft Office Importer is splitting into multiple columns can contain as many Excel columns and rows as you like.
In effect, your tall paste flows naturally from one column in your design file to the next column (from left to right).
The result is your paste starts where you choose and automatically creates one or more “columns” for you.
