Update Excel exported schedule

Is it possible to update a schedule which was exported to Excel? Assume that I have added an extra column to the exported excel file, so when I re-export the schedule, I do not want to loose the extra column, currently the whole excel file is updated as per my knowledge.


Any additional changes in Excel can not be imported into AC because these changes can not be organized within the model

You must :
- create an element nomenclature from AC with one or more properties to inquire
- export the file xls from the menu File / interoperability / classification and properties
- modify only the column or columns previously created by AC
- save the xls file
- import the xls file into AC from the menu File / interoperability / classification and properties

Thanks for the information.

But I do not need to import back the information, it is maintained as an external database.

I think you will need to save as a new Excel file from Archicad.
And then use some Excel magic to merge the new file into the original one.
