Arbortext Editor 5.3 M210 - Importing Tables Via Excel into S1000D Problem

Hi,



When I copy a simple table from MS Excel into an S1000D document and
use the Edit/Paste Excel feature, I get a table of the correct size and
number of rows, but the table is empty.







I've painstakingly followed the directions for using the Excel import
feature to the letter, but the result is the same.



Looking at the source all the entry rows are empty.







Suggestions?



Greg

Hi Greg,


I think the S1000D DTD for the table model you are using doesn't allow content unless it's wrapped inside a <para> element. So the entry (cell) needs to contain the <para>.


One quick suggestion you can try is to modify your DCF's InsertAuto field to force a <para> in the cell whenever a table, row, or column is inserted.


If this does not work, I can send suggestion on how to modify the template used during the Paste Excel feature (a bit morelengthly process though, so try the DCF first).
