Can Revit import MS Office documents such as Word and Excel? If so please describe how well Revit handles imoprting these files and if it has the ability to link to these types of files. I know earlier releases of ACAD you could import excel and word docs but only a certian amount of rows and column in excel. Want to know if Revit can do this. Thanks.

Word documents are easy. Simply select all the text in the word doc and copy to clipboard. Then start a new text box in revit and paste into it. Excel docs are a little more tricky. Two methods: Make a jpg file of the spreadsheet and import in as an image. Or link the excel spreadsheet into an ACAD file and then link the ACAD file into revit... This method will retain some automation... HTH.

We use "Snag-it" to cut and paste from Excel.

You say that Word documents are easy, but I've had problems in the past with them. If I remember right I had a document that had two columns separated by tabs. When it pastes in everything is misaligned. You can zoom in and realign it, but if you zoom out and it re-misaligns somethings. I had to raise my voice in the office to the guy that was repeatedly zooming in, fixing it, zooming out, zooming in, fixing it, zooming out...I told him the definition of crazy was doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result, but that didn't stop him. I threatened to remove all of his projects from his job-list so that he could spend rest of the week trying to get the text aligned. Eventually, I leaned over, deleted the whole text box, saved to central and closed Revit.

I tried linking the Excel spreadsheet to ACAD and then importing the DWG into Revit, but Revit said that it couldn't link all elements and did nothing. Does it matter how you link the Excel spreadsheet to ACAD?

And as a side note...didn't we pay enough for this program and all that came with it to expect to have the ability to do something so basic as to import any of the Microsoft Office products?  Or even to have a decent text editing function?? Based upon the number of comments and questions regarding this subject, it seems to me that it has more than enough merit to the end user.
