I love this Excel sheet, but I have one problem with it.
I work in Standard Unites, when I run the Excel sheet, found in Catia's installation directory, it divides all my values by 25.4.
So if I have point with these values: 1,1,1.
The Excel sheet will create a point with .0394, .0394, .0394.

I have side stepped this issue by multiplying all my input data by 25.4 to get the correct values.

But does anybody know how I can fix this so it is a direct import so I will not have to change my values before importing?

RE: GSD_PointSplineLoftFromExcelL

in the code you find

CODE -->

'Conversion string -> double
    Chain2 = GetCellB(iRang)
    Chain3 = GetCellC(iRang)
    If ((Len(Chain) > 0) And (Len(Chain2) > 0) And (Len(Chain3) > 0)) Then
        X = CDbl(Chain)
        Y = CDbl(Chain2)
        Z = CDbl(Chain3) 

you can include you multiplication here...

Thanks, that was a pretty easy fix.
