Q - question

How to insert an Excel table into Inventor?

A - answer You can use the Table tool (Drawing annotations, or Annotate ribbon) to insert (import) table data in the XLS or CSV formats to a drawing view.

Click the Browse button (icon) and select your .XLS or .CSV table. Inventor loads the external table data to a native drawing table, which can be formatted.

Don't use the Insert Object tool to insert Excel tables.
