I use YAML “flow mapping” syntax to organize data in a proprietary system. I want to import and manipulate this data in Excel, as a table.

I need an Excel template which will take the text in one cell, which is a YAML “flow mapping”, and interpret it as a data for a table.

IF: I copy/paste a line of YAML into a specific cell, example: ‘A1’ on ‘Sheet1’
THEN: on ‘Sheet2’ the table described in the YAML is written.
IF the string in A1 is not a valid YAML,

The script must interpret/parse “Flow mapping” syntax, for example:
- { inner : entry , also: inner , }
