I am having a problem when importing a table from Excel to Indesign.
I am getting errors when there is a formula behind text in the table. If the formula results in a number, the number is imported and there is no problem....but if the formula results in text, the cell will be blank or a '-1' appears.
Does anyone know how to get around this?
Thanks for reaching out. Does it help if you import Excel tables without formating?

Thank you for your help, but unfortunately this does not resolve my issue!
What version of InDesign are you using and what version of Excel?
This looks to be the same issue: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/65160/data-missing-when-importing-a-spreadsheet-in...
Specifically, "The issue is not how to import it, but rather that I'm importing a spreadsheet with formulas in them. If the formula results in a number, the number is imported, but if it text, the cell will be blank. This is where I have the problem". The answer was to save the Excel file as .xls and not .xlxs. Let us know if that works.
Thank you for your help Barb. When I trry to save my Excel file as .xls it is warning me of many errors ...
I will save this and test in InDesign and create a backup for protection.
