Project Description

  • Easily and quickly import Excel spreadsheets and Word documents of almost any size, in a single paste.
  • Create stable, reliable links from data pasted in CAD files to Excel spreadsheets and Word documents.
  • Fit tall Excel or Word pastes inside short spaces with our unique “column flow” feature which creates columns on the fly — with repeating column headers.
  • Paste data with superior formatting. For example, bolding, italicizing and underlining are handled gracefully.
  • Follow your CAD standards — choose level/layer, color, weight, style, text size, font and more.

  • Predefine text size settings for every scale you work at and easily pick your scale from a list at paste time.

Our Customers Agree!

We’re not exaggerating when we say we’ve changed our customers’ work lives for the better. Our customers no longer have the mind-numbing frustration that used to happen nearly every time they tried to import Excel or Word data into their MicroStation and AutoCAD files. They no longer waste time futzing with poor formatting, pastes that won’t fit, standards violations, links that don’t work reliably and missing data. The time savings add up on every project — you’ve got to see it to believe it.

“I’ve used Axiom’s Microsoft Office Importer for years. We currently use it with our tables for roadway elevations. We do elevation tabulation sheets. One spreadsheet can have 40 rows of information or more, covering several miles of highway, with several sheets. When I’m done using Microsoft Office Importer on them, they LOOK REALLY NICE, and they have A LOT of information. And every time we make an update, it updates our work automatically, it references the updates right in. I’ll tell you, we have A LOT of sheets. In the past, it would take one professional several days to get the job done. But when I used Microsoft Office Importer, I did it in 1/2 a day. Mine looked just as professional. so we have simply abandoned the Old way Of doing it. Microsoft Office Importer formats the sheets exactly how I want them. When there is a time constraint – which is always – using Microsoft Office Importer has been critical for us. Now we can get more done. Microsoft Office Importer gets all the rows right. We reference the spreadsheet in, and it updates perfectly. You can reformat it just the way you want it, every single time. It follows the CAD format just the way we want it. Our projects are custom jobs, so perfection is key. I’m a lifelong fan.”

“We especially use Axiom’s tool, Microsoft Office Importer, for importing quantities and spreadsheets from Excel into MicroStation. To try to update and do this from scratch without Microsoft Office Importer is very time-consuming, and it is much easier to import into MicroStation with Microsoft Office Importer. Per project, the amount of time it saves varies, but on our most recent project, we have saved a day’s worth Of work per spreadsheet, especially if we have to update and add a column or add a row. On an average project, we have at least 11-12 tables and spreadsheets. TO say it in a different way, your Microsoft Office Importer tool saved us an estimated three months Of full-time work on just one project. It saves quite a bit Of money and time – without Microsoft Office Importer, we’d have to have one person working full time. “

Microsoft Office Importer and You

Trying to import huge spreadsheets into MicroStation, AutoCAD or Civil3D? Want to paste a bill of materials, or a schedule, into a design file and keep a link to the original spreadsheet? Pasting a very large spreadsheet into a design file, but want to do it all in one paste?

Microsoft Office Importer enables users to import nearly unlimited quantities of spreadsheet data into MicroStation and AutoCAD files with exceptional formatting and reliability. Microsoft Office Importer eliminates the need for manual entry or manipulation of text when the data is already available in another form. It can import much larger blocks of formatted information with a single paste than is possible with MicroStation or AutoCAD alone. The MicroStation V8 version includes ProjectWise support.
