Importing Tables

  • Importing a DOCX template with tables into a DOCX template with tables works fine.
  • Importing an XLSX template into a DOCX template inserts it as a Word table. All Excel formulas are lost because Word tables have no concept of formulas. Windward tag formulas in cells import fine.
  • Importing a DOCX template with tables into an XLSX template imports the entire template into the single cell that contains the import tag. The table becomes just text - no table as Excel does not support tables within a cell.
  • Importing an XLSX template into an XLSX template imports the entire table into the single cell that contains the import tag. The table becomes just text - no table as Excel does not support tables within a cell.
