MySQL for Excel data types not documented

I installed MySQL for Excel and imported my table. Or rather tried to. I promptly got the "Input string was not in a correct format." error message.

After a bit of digging, someone "fixed" the issue by converting everything to Varchar data types. So some of the MySQL data types are not supported, fair enough.

But is there anywhere a table that shows what *is* supported? Is this mentioned in the documentation at all?

From a bit of experimentation at least int and decimal fail. Varchar and multilinestring work ok.
