Import Excel File into Notes easily

Idea

I would like to be able to import excel files into Evernote without needing to use scripts.   Each line of the excel file could be a new Note 

You could provide a template format like the following:

 

Column a = Notebook Name

Column B = Note Title

Columns C - N = Tags

Column O - Z = Comments in Note

 

This would be amazing - but I must admit, I would be THRILLED if you could just upload Notes into a specific Notebook by dragging and dropping an .xlsx or .csv file into a Notebook.

 

If this already exists, I would love to know how!  I did this in a previous release but no one seems to know how to do it now.

I just tried dragging an xlsx file into the dock icon of Version 6.12 beta 3 Mac and it worked perfectly, including showing a preview of all four sheets in the workbook. Is this what you're trying to do?

My preference is for the generic .csv file instead of the app specific .xlsx file

The OP was asking for the spreadsheet data to be parsed into separate notes

As you pointed out, Evernote works well with office/iwork documents; searchable and inline view (Mac) 

I'm a fan of adding files as attachments to notes.  I use the Evernote editor for basic notes, but use dedicated apps for word processing, spreadsheet, note taking, ....

I used MSOffice's Mail Merge feature to do something similar a while ago - use the Excel file as a database,  and set up mail merge fields in Word;  then save the output as files rather than printing them.  Worked for me at the time...
