Will sketchup externally reference text or data from excell or other file types?

I want to import text and numbers from and excell or word file and have sketchup populate my drawing with this info. In other words i want sketchup to externally reference a excel file and field(s) to gather the text. I want sketchup to control the size, font style, fill, etc. but the text be determined from this external file. Is there a plugin for this?

LayOut can do this. Working with text, tables, etc is not something SketchUp was designed to do.

Yes there are some plugins for Windows platform …
