Populate Excel Cells with Referenced File Data?

I don't know if this is possible, but it would be pretty cool...

 

If I have an Excel file in the vault and I create references to other files (specifically, SW drawings), can I somehow have cells in the Excel file populated with values from properties in the drawing file?

 

I'm thinking of, say, a Work Order form in Excel.  I'd like to be able to specify which parts are to be made by pasting the drawings as references to the Excel WO file and have EPDM automatically read P/N and Description info from the drawing files and fill the line items of the form with it.

 

Am I dreaming?
