dont know of any way to link excel to prop text directly but as you say, you can link to a variable and you can expose a variable to be used as property text.  so i think tha tis your workflow...

Hi Matt,

 

Thanks for you answer.

I don't know how to initialize a variable in text format. Only a numeric variable...

Excel can be used to drive variables. That works well and is stables

 

Getting information from SE to Excel, no way to create links and updates. One time transfers can be done.

 

As a result, using tables from excel as a work around for no variables into SE tables is not an option.

Is it possible to use VBA excel to modify custom properties.

Re: Link excel to property draft

@cedi,  Yes,   VBA or any programming interface you prefer can be used to modify properties...

 

SE has an exposed API...  you will find many examples and more detailed info inteh SE Developer forums:
