Is it possible to link data from cells in Excell to data fields in Microstation?

RE: Links to Excel

Yes it is. Depending on your version of MicroStation you can copy and paste a spreadsheet with links. Look on the Bently website, I found information there that will help you get-r-done.

RE: Links to Excel

I am familiar with pasting a complete spreadsheet into Microstation by using the Axiom application. But after doing that or before, I would like to link a specific cell (A24 for example) to print the text in that cell on the drawing in a specific location.

Take a look at "Using OLE Container" it walks you through the process.
