Automatically Update Spreadsheet Links Every Time Microstation Files Are Opened
One of the problems that MicroStation users face is that MicroStation's LiveLinks software often does not automatically update spreadsheet or word processing data when a MicroStation file [in which this data is linked] is opened. The data is not automatically updated even though the spreadsheet or word processing file has been modified and saved after the import. In addition, the links created with LiveLinks, if later unlinked, tend to create unselectable elements in a design file.

Take Advantage Of Excel named Ranges When Importing
Take Advantage Of Excel named Ranges When Importing
When using Microsoft Office Importer to import Excel data into a design file, you highlight and copy a range of Excel cells to the Windows clipboard and then import the clipboard data into the design file. Doing so causes the absolute row numbers and column numbers of the imported cells to be stored in the design file. For example, a cell range of B1:D25 means the data copied is in the cells contained in columns B through D and rows 1 through 25.
