Can we use Excel to create objects?

May 6, 2021 . FAQ

Excel is a great tool to use when creating hundreds or thousands of Blippa objects.
Combined with Blippas “Swiss army knife”, the variables, you can create thousands of individual objects in no-time 🙂


  1. Create a Template.
  2. In the template, create variables to be used (like serial_number etc) for everything you like to have “dynamic”.
  3. Add the variables in pages, links, object descriptions, like “This boat has  serial number $var:serial_number$ “Note: It is easiest to use the editor on the object page and from the menu select Blippa Inserts. Then you can see how the varables look and then cut/paste them to other places (like the Discription or Name fields).
