Linking an Excel file

Can I link an excel file to AC, without losing the formatting?

Is it possible to make an excel file automatically update in AC (after I edit it in Excel)?

You can’t link an excel file directly unfortunately. I would love that feature though. 

The easiest way is to print your excel content to a pdf and place that as a linked drawing in archicad, with auto update set. 
That way when you change your excel content and re-print to the pdf and save it over the top of your previous pdf, the updates will come through to archicad automatically.
