[duxuser] Re: excel again


Hello Ann, 

In Excel, when you Select All and then paste it into Word, it should
automatically be pasted as a Word table. Are you getting that? From there,
you might want to go to the Table menu, select Convert and choose Convert
table to text. Then you can choose to have each cell separated by a tab,
with a punctuation mark, or with a hard carriage return. Depending on what
your data is, if you import a Word table directly into DBT, you should get
automatic stairstep formatting. BTW, just save as a Word doc without any of
the fancy things. 

Hope this helps.

Jean

I know I will never excel at Excel, but I would like to at least have a
halfway readable Braille document from Excel. I've tried pasting into word,
saving as word doc and opening in Duxbury. The formatting and even the
Braille translation was pretty close to the weirdest thing I've ever seen. I
tried saving as text comma delimited and open in duxbury. Still a mess. I
tried saving as html, and got nothing but code of every kind.
What a mess! I'm using office 2007 and Duxbury 10.7.
