Looping though nested tables

Looping though nested tables

Looping though nested tables

I'm trying to find a way to loop on a table within another table.

Layout is like this:

Using the script below, I can loop through the rows and export the data to Excel.  But the nested tables are exported into a single cell in Excel.

How do get the data into Excel, and maintain the correct row layout?

<script type="text/javascript">
function isIE() // Function to Determine IE or Not
 return /msie/i.test(navigator.userAgent) && !/opera/i.test(navigator.userAgent);

function exportToExcel() // Function to Export the Table Data to Excel.
var isIEBrowser = isIE();
if(isIEBrowser== false)
alert('Please use Internet Explorer for Excel Export Functionality.');
return false;
var strTableID = "1x1x"; // It's the Table ID of Table in Webpart
var detailsTable = document.getElementById(strTableID);
var objExcel = new ActiveXObject("Excel.Application");
var objWorkBook = objExcel.Workbooks.Add;
var objWorkSheet = objWorkBook.Worksheets(1);

for (var intRowIndex=0;intRowIndex<detailsTable.rows.length;intRowIndex++)
for (var intColumnIndex=0;intColumnIndex<detailsTable.rows(intRowIndex).cells.length;intColumnIndex++)
  if(intColumnIndex != 20)
  objWorkSheet.Cells(intRowIndex+1,intColumnIndex+1) = detailsTable.rows(intRowIndex).cells(intColumnIndex).innerText;
objExcel.Visible = true;
objExcel.UserControl = true;



RE: Looping though nested tables

I think you want this in the Javascript forum.
