Inport Text from Excel Doc (LOCKED: Duplicate post)

I have an Excel doc that I am extracting from into InDesign however one of the cells in InDesign is in the Pasteboard area. Text will not inport from Excel into the PB area.

 

Is there a work around for this?

 

Why won't this work?

 

I am using the Data Merge feature of InDesign for this and don't see a override. 

 

Is there another script out there that will work better if there is no work around?

 

Thanks

Hi @Christopher3440329747o5:

 

What screen mode are you in? View > Screen Mode > Normal?

 

If yes, can you share a screen shot in Normal screen mode and with View > Extras > Frame Edges visible?

Hi @Christopher3440329747o5 

 

I already provided a potential solution in the other thread you started on this topic.
