Insert text from Excel file into mindmape as a title (in text field)

Hello dear community,

we would like to insert text into a text box above the mind map (as a title).

The source of this text should be an Excel file of a specific name, saved in the same directory as the .mmap-file. The position of the text is always the same sheet - and always the same cell.

Is that possible (maybe by a link function or a macro)? How can we do this?

I would be glad if anyone could give us a hint. Thanks a lot in advance!

yours,
Daniel

I think the function Advanced > Excel Range will synchronise topic data with a range in an Excel spreadsheet.

If this is not sufficient then a custom macro could do this.

Hello Nick D,

thank you for your answer!

I think I should do this with a macro.
I am already using macros in MS office, but I have no clue how to start in Mindmanager.
Is there a manual or command list available somewhere?

Thanks for your help...

yours,
Daniel

There is documentation for the MindManager API at
