Saveas HTMLTable and formatting - PB 11.5

Saveas HTMLTable and formatting - PB 11.5


I am saving a datawindow as a .xls file with the type of HTMLTable! because it exports a true representation of the data in the datawindow (columns, order...). But when I open the file all of the columns are very narrow.

Do you know how to control the characterisics of the generated file? Is there a setting which will make the file retain the displayed format?



RE: Saveas HTMLTable and formatting - PB 11.5

Don't take this as the definitive answer, but I have never seen a direct export which had any visual effect. However, what I've done in the past is used OLE control of the exported .xls(x) file to format it and make it pretty.

Thanks a lot Matt. I am definitely going to check it out. The price is great for the results it says it will deliver.
