If you (or any other reader) can teach me how to copy a table from my SS, I am happy to show you.

I see a few people have responded already... I think I have slightly easier way though.

- From excel, go to File->Save As
- In the pull down menu for "save as type" select "formatted text (space delimited)"
- Hit "save"

Now you have a text file saved where the formatting of the cells in excel has been automatically converted to spaces for you. Open this in any text editor... word pad, notepad... probably even word works. It should require minimal cleaning up if any.

- From the text file, select and copy the table and paste it in between < PRE > and < /PRE > tags (except leave out the spaces... those were only included to make the tags visible in the message) in your post. It will look like a complete mess when you paste it in, but when you click on "preview message" you'll see that it looks just like it did in the text file or in excel.

Hope that helps.
