shrug-l: Excel 2010 in ArcGIS 10.1 Layout

ArcGIS is alleged by its maker to support Excel spreadsheets in Layout.
I went through the ordeal of taking every space out of a complicated address file,  I exported as XLS instead of XLSX [in case it didn't like the newer format] .
I entered layout, opened the table [it looks fine],  set its appearance and add it to the layout.  It will not appear.   I get what looks like a header in an otherwise large, empty box.
Has anyone had success with importing Excel files into ArcGIS 10.1 Layout?  If so, what is the trick?
