This works like a charm for my application, from the first try. Many thanks!

comment Change height of a box, recalculate rubber lengths
@egreg: Thanks. Can I use a \vbox like a minipage (type in paragraphs separated by an empty line, specify the width of the box)? Then I could use \vbox instead of minipage -- but isn't a minipage just a box (internally) that can be unboxed just the same?

comment Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables
@XiangJi: Yes, the setup routine is brittle. Where is your Excel2LaTeX.xla installed? You might be able to edit the VBA code if you run it from a location where you have write permission.

comment Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables
@XiangJi: This is unfortunate, OS X always gives me pain, and I don't have access to Excel 2016 yet. Is a "Debug" button shown? This might take you to the code where the error actually occurs. Also, what's the "On error" setting in your Excel's VBA? (It should be one of "Always stop", "Stop if in class", "Never stop", or something the like.) -- Please consider reporting this issue on Launchpad.
