The spreadsheet was working in the 2021 version until it was upgraded to the 2022 version.

I have followed the online instructions for inserting/placing a spreasheet into Indesign and it appears with no data and only red dots.

 

Thank you.

Red dots?

Indicate overset text cells.

All contents should be there. Show details with the Story Editor window. Keyboard shortcut Ctrl + y when selecting the text frame. Or Cmd + y when on a Mac. It's only that perhaps some cell formatting like big inset values or text formatting like a big font size will not allow any contents to appear in every table cell.

Thank you for your assistance but the spreadsheet was inserting correctly previously but is no longer formatted. The font is small and fits within the constraints of the page. I have made the window that I am inserting it into larger than the schedule and it is still appearing with red dots and no visible data.

 

Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Making the window lager will not help, you have to make the table larger.

If it worked before, learn how to use Table styles and witin that Cell styles and within that, important to fit the text, Paragraph styles.
