How to edit table and how to import table from excel

Import Table From MS Excel in AutoCAD


In this video, we will see how we can edit the table and import the table from Excel to AutoCAD.

Now, suppose if you want to enter anything inside the table, we can double-click on any cell and write the data we like.

If we want to insert a new row below the table, we can select any cell from the last row and select the 'Insert Below' option from Rows properties from the Command menu. It will insert one new row below.

Similarly, we have the 'Insert Above' option, which will insert one new row above the row we select.

If we want to delete any row, we can select the 'Delete rows' option after selecting the row we want to delete from the command menu's rows properties.

If we want to insert one new column to the right side of an existing column, we can use the 'Insert Right' option from the column's properties from the command menu.

Similarly, we can insert any column to the left side using the 'Insert Left' option.
If we want to delete any column, we can select the 'Delete columns' option after setting the column we want to delete from columns properties from the command menu.

We can also use the merge cells option as per our requirement; we have three major types of mergers available. First, one merged by column, the second one is connected by row, while the third one is merging.

If we want to insert a table from an excel file, we can use the insert from a data link option, browse our MS Excel file in it, and then select it. After we choose, we can see the table in preview. Moreover, we will press OK and proceed.

The table which we imported will be inserted in the insert table option, and we can use it to insert it into our AutoCAD screen.
So this is how we can import any MS Excel table into AutoCAD using the method mentioned above.


  • At the Command prompt, type TABLE.
  • Enter 4 columns and 3 data rows in the Insert Table dialogue box.
  • To display the table's grips, click outside the table and then pick it on one of its edges.
  • Click the dark blue triangle grips to modify the table's size and shape.

  • TABLEEXPORT can be found on the command line in AutoCAD.
  • Select the table you want to export when prompted.
  • Save the file in the CSV format with the appropriate filename.
  • In Excel, open the CSV file that has resulted.
  • Make any changes to the table that you want.
  • Save the document as an XLS or XLSX spreadsheet.

Take the following steps:

  • Select the spreadsheet region you wish to import in Microsoft Excel and copy it to the clipboard.
  • Select Paste Special from the Edit menu in AutoCAD.
  • Select the AutoCAD Entities option in the Paste Special dialogue box.

Transfer Data to a New Worksheet:

  • Go to Sheet 2 now (see the steps on the video above)
  • Choose a cell on the sheet that isn't in use (cell C4 in this example).
  • Click Advanced on the Data tab of the Excel Ribbon.
  • Select Copy to a new location.
  • In the List Range box, click.
  • Choose Sheet1 and then the database.

Import data from Microsoft Excel or Access:

  • Select Data > Get Data > From File > From Folder from the drop-down menu.
  • Find the folder that contains the files you want to merge.
  • The Folder path> dialogue box displays a list of the files in the folder.
  • Combine > Combine & Load, for example, is one of the commands at the bottom of the dialogue box.
