Importing Excel Spreadsheet with embedded formulas

08/16/18 Edited 12/09/19

Does anyone know if you can import a Excel spreadsheet into SmartSheet with embedded formulas and formulas linked to other sheets in the same Excel file without having to re-create the formula within SmartSheet?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, you can only import one tab on the Excel spreadsheet each time.

    I hope this helps you!

  • Hi Andrea, 

    Thank you for your response. That is what I gathered and I just wanted to make sure nothing has changed. The other question I do have is when I import any Excel sheet with existing formulas already created they do not import. I have to re-create each formula for each cell after I import into SmartSheet. Is there a way around this issue without having to re-create each formula once the data is imported into SmartSheet? Thanking you in advance.

    Happy to help! 

    The formulas should get imported (if you choose to), but it might be that there's an issue at the moment. I'd recommend contacting the Smartsheet Support Team also.

    Some Excel formulas don't have matches and don't import (at least, last time I checked).

    In Excel, you can turn off formula calculation that allows you to edit them. I used to replace "=" with "!=" and then import that way, as it is no longer a formula, just text.
