    In Flexi 8,

    Edit>Insert New Object

    Choose 'Create from file' and browse to your excel file.

    Once in Flexi, select the image, then click on Arrange>Convert Linked to Native

    Now you can edit the text.

    I'm glad someone asked that. Up till now I didn't think it was possible to do anything with those files short of redrawing them, which I have been doing for years...lol

    Corel plays well with Office documents too. Most of the time it's just a simple copy and paste function and you're good to go.

    Wow,
    That is an awsome feature. I figured there was a way in flexi to do this, just didn't know.
    Thanks

    This should be posted in the Tips section

    I typically just copy and paste directly into Flexi from Excel. If this doesn't work, I create a pdf in Excel and bring this into Flexi.
