Clearwater, Florida, USA -- Axiom, the world's largest independent provider of general-purpose MicroStation utilities, announces the latest release of Microsoft Office Importer, for MicroStation V7 and V8. Microsoft Office Importer now allows users to import Excel charts into their design files. As part of the import process, Microsoft Office Importer actually recreates all charts using MicroStation elements. Microsoft Office Importer then establishes automatic links between the Excel chart and the chart in MicroStation so that any time the source chart in Excel is modified, the chart in MicroStation is automatically updated each time the design file is opened. Importing charts in MicroStation without using Microsoft Office Importer only results in pasting raster images of the charts in MicroStation.
All a user has to do is copy the chart to the Windows clipboard, then use Microsoft Office Importer's <Paste Excel charts into MicroStation> button to paste the chart into the design file.
"Microsoft Office Importer's ability to import charts is the first step toward its ability to import other objects from Excel into MicroStation like diagrams and drawings. This is an entirely new arena for Microsoft Office Importer, and I'm excited at the possibilities," comment Mark Thomas, Executive Product Manager for Microsoft Office Importer.
