There are some Community Tools that integrate with Excel and should be able to accomplish what you are looking to do. Note that community tools are not supported by K2. Here are a few examples from the K2 Market.

Hi tkunohim,


The function that you have mentioned in your post can still be used if your environment has been upgraded from 4.7.

The legacy components are no longer available inew installations of K2 Five. These legacy tools may also not be available, supported, or behave as described, in future updates or versions of K2


Hope this helps
