Saving JRI search results #general


Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

Does anyone know of a way to save the output of a JRI-Poland search in a useable
format other than as a "web page"? I'd like to save it as a WordPerfect document
or, better yet, an Excel spreadsheet, so I can highlight entries, mark them when
ordered, etc.

If I save it as a web page, then open it in WP, the table cells all get squished.
If I produce a text file, the columns get all messed up. Any ideas? Am I missing
something simple?

To save a JRI-Poland search (http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm),
you can do this:

1. Save the results as an html file (with your internet browser)

2. Open the html file with Microsoft Word.

3. Save the file in "Word Document" format.

4. Take a minute or two to clean up the file.

Thanks to everyone who responded.

DUH --- I knew I was missing the obvious. Not sure what I'd done wrong
the last time I tried copying it directly to Excel, but it works like a
charm --- just as one would expect!

Fran,

I highlight all of the text, copy to clipboard, and special paste into an excel
document. This allows you to highlight or fill any cells you wish, and works just
like anything else on excel.

Hi Fran,

Is very easy to save the results as an Excel spreadsheet. Simply click Ctrl-A in
the results web page (Select All), then Ctrl-C (Copy). Open a new Excel document,
and then do Ctrl-V (Paste). The spreadsheet may require a bit of formatting.

Regards,
