Hi Guys,

Do you know if there is a way to import a table from Word or Excel into InDesign...at the moment i'm having a fun time copying and pasting a 60 column table..any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There is a way but not 100% off the top of my head - starting to forget all the little tricks

you can place the entire word file into the document - I used to do it on a seperate document within indesign then you can select the table within a text frame (which contains the whole document so you may have to link some or delete stuff from it) then copy and paste.

Hope you understand that

what devoid says is one way of doing things by creating a text frame but if your using excel, you can just do this instead File -> place -> click on your excel file "name.xls"

then follow the options and there you have the imported table.
