BIMWERX - Draw Spreadsheet Add-in

From the Autodesk App Store...

This add-in allows the user to open a spreadsheet, using the .xlsx or .csv file format, and then to define a selection / region to insert into an active Autodesk® Revit® Drafting view by creating an external link (using DXF), then inserting it as an external link into the active Drafting view.

There are many add-ins available that can import spreadsheets into Revit using Schedule views, which requires a parametric link to model elements, but very few (if any) that can insert any spreadsheet table data into a Drafting view using the methods mentioned above.

This allows the user to insert virtually any table region into Revit, which can then be placed onto Sheets.
