I too am having a heck of a time importing XLS files into V8. Report looks great in Excel, looks horrible /unusable in Monarch. The FAQ answer for this listed on this website is of no help to me. /b[/quote]Tim,
It may be worth opening a new thread for your problem because it looks like dwatcher1 has a technical problem which you don't have so there is little in common between the two problems.
For what it is worth I have not seen any problems importing Excel files to V8 but then I may not be using the same version of Excel and my Excel worksheets may not be subject to the same sort fo formatting as yours.
If you post a new thread can you provide us with an example (desriptive) of what makes the files look great in Excel and what they look like in Monarch by comparison.
Is it reasonable to assume that you are reading the Excel files into Monarch as a database? Or are you exporting them to a text file first and then opening them with Monarch?
Looking forward to your further information and hoping I can help with this.
