Yet Another Text Linking Question

Yet Another Text Linking Question

Yet Another Text Linking Question

Just another question please.  Is there a way to link individual cells in excel with a text node or a text data cell in microstation.  Example: If I have a floor plan.  Each room is numbered with a data cell (text with a box around it).  That room number is also listed in a table at the bottom of the drawing in a table with its corresponding room description.  So for instance a room number would be L-019 or L-019A.  Is there a way to link the one cell in Excel with both of the locations, the one in the drawing and the one in the table.  We are currently in the finishing stages of the design and room numbers sometimes change.  Like because of a larger room being split up the new label could be L-022 or L-022A.  If you could help with this answer that would be great.
