Hi there,
I'm having difficulties with placing/importing excel-sheets into indesign. I did check the box: 'Show Import Options'. The only result is again and again a pop-up message: "Unable to place the file. There is no filter for this" (Or actually in Dutch: "Kan dit bestand niet plaatsen. Er is geen filter voor de gevraagde bewerking gevonden.").
I've installed the latest version of indesign, i have an up to date computer... Can anybody help me solving this issue?
Regards, Onno

Open it in Excel and re-save it.

Is it truly an Excel worksheet or did you save as Excel from a different application such as Google Sheets?

Hi Bob,

Thanks for responding that quick. You're right it was an 'numbers' file originally.

Hi Bob,
I checked it... That seems to be the answer. Thank you. An origional-excel-document does work.
So now I have to figure out how to get another file or how to translate it into a readable-one.

How many files do you have? If it's just one, put it in a dropbox folder and share a link here.

Hi Bob, That's too nice. But there is no need for that. Thank you.
There will be many more than one files in the upcoming time. I now know the problem and with your solution I can fix it myself... One way or another. As I said, you've realy helped me out.
Let's hope that oneday InDesign and Numbers will fully 'unite'. (Sorry, can't help being happy)
