Merged cells and line break

Hi,

I have linked an excel sheet to my InDesign, and it updates perfectly with my character, paragraph, cell and table styles. But I have two issues I can't fix:

  • one of my headings is in a horizontally merged cell in excel, but it comes in unmerged. I have then merged in InDesign, but every time I update it gets unmerged again.
  • I have a cell in excel with a forced line break. When imported part of the second line can be on the first line, so InDesign breaks it differently. If I make a forced line break in InDesign it disappears when the link to excel is updated.

Hope someone can help.

Hello

 

When linking your excel file - File>Place and click Show Options

Is the table format set to Formatted or Unformatted?
