Inserting MS Excel Tables into Messages
« on: November 20, 2015, 07:17:49 AM »
I've seen people insert MS Excel budgets into their messages but I can't figure out how to do it. Any ideas? I see there is an "insert table" icon, but I couldn't figure out the code.

Thanks

If it's an actual excel budget, it's probably just a screenshot.

If it's just a table, find one like what you're talking about, hit "quote" on the post, and look at their code.

Thank you. I took a screenshot of MS Excel (print screen) - pasted it into MS Word (control+v) - right clicked the image and saved it as a .jpg and then attached the .jpg to the message. That did the trick.

If you want the table to be editable, the following steps work for me,
paste in something from excel,
then select what you pasted in,
then right click it and choose paste special,
choose rich text
click ok
It should then paste in an editable table and you can delete your originally pasted in table.

Thank you but I don't have "paste special" in IE or Firefox. Are you using a different browser?
