Here's a fun macro that lets you easily paste a spreadsheet into a post on these message boards.

It's in the spreadsheet ExportText.xls available for free download at:
Click on the ExportText link then use the Download link (a downward pointing arrow at the far right of the ExportText.xls line).

Basically, when you have your spreadsheet ready, you just open ExportText, switch back to your spreadsheet, highlight the area you want to use, and run the macro. Notepad opens up with the exact text you need for posting — you just copy it into your post!

It has some options for how many spaces between columns and how you want the columns aligned. It also can do bold and italic.

Complete instructions are in the spreadsheet.

It's written in Excel2000, but it might also work in Excel97. It won't work with earlier versions.


And now a reminder that donations are always welcomed. Donations are not tax-deductible, and can be made using the address phil32767 at yahoo dot com (replacing the " at " with @ and the " dot " with . of course) at
