Import Excel function and S1000D

Has anyone heard anything about PTC updating the Arbortext Tools to accomodate things like making the Import Excel function work with the S1000D schemas.

S1000D requires a para tag in each entry cell of a table.  Because of this the import excel function does not work properly with S1000D.  The only way around it right now, is to physically add the para tags to the data before you import, making the tool virtually useless.  It would be nice if they could rework the tool and give us an option of either milspec or S1000D functionality to choose from.

Hi Sindy,

Unfortunately, the Import/Export feature was developed by a third party that no longer works on it, so it was announced in 2014 that this was moving to sustained support:

The only thing I can think of is that perhaps, based on the business logic, there's a way to automate the insertion of those para tags with some ACL to make the process easier.
