I have imported a Microsoft Excel worksheet into FrameMaker. The data in
the worksheet is in one column (13 items of data separated by a blank row -
there are many sets of 13 items of data) in Microsoft Excel. When I import
it into FrameMaker, the data is imported as one large continuous table with
a blank row between each 13 items of data. I would like FrameMaker to format
the data into individual tables, rather than one continuous table, as I need
to add text and headings between the data. If this cannot be done, is there
a way to change the blank row inside the table from a Cell Body style into a
Body style outside the table, as this may help in placing the text and
headings between the tables. Has anyone attempted to do anything like
