Excel table in gw post?

Posted by river_crossroads (My Page) on

Hi, I want to save an Excel spreadsheet as html & include in a gw post. Is that possible?

I know how to type a table in html, no problem for a simple table. We have a competition going on in a gw forum & we post our count in an html table. The count is kept in an Excel spreadsheet. I see how to save Excel as html. When I look at the code, the body has almost nothing in it. The functions are all in the head & of course I can't get into the head in a gw post.

I am currently hand typing the new numbers into the html table. Very tedious. Any way to use Excel saved as html in a post? Any other suggestions?

Thanks a lot,

RE: Excel table in gw post?

This may help? At least give you something to work with, tweak and format.

Briefly trying it using a portion of this spreadsheet gives me an ugly unformated html table but I suspect it could be made to work?

I get an extra blank line for each row but that seems to be a gw thing, probably a workaround.
