    How do I import excel tables into website builder V7?

    I have several excel tables I want to put onto some of my pages, displayed as a table. I do not want to hand jam all the records or do hundreds of copy paste operations. I am not looking for a database solution.

    Well found my answer messing around.

    I saved the excel spreadsheet as a web page. I was able to play with formatting in excel and save most of the changes to html. I opened the web page saved to my local system in chrome and viewed the frame source. I selected from the first table tag to the end table tag. I used the html code option from the website builder menu and then pasted my table code from the frame source. Bingo a nicely formatted table in my page with minimal effort.

    Wow, is there an easier way for us dummies?

    Broken85,

    I applaud your elegant solution.  I was appalled when I discovered upon upgrading for 6 to 7 that my ability to simply drop an excel spreadsheet into a content box no longer worked.  

    Now I did have to edit the HTML in the settings to get column widths set, borders to show, and make column headers bold but that's not such a big deal.

    I think Go-Daddy owes you money because without your council they would have lost a customer.

    I too applaud the solution. I tried it, and it worked great.  I saved  my table in Excel as an *htm, opened in in Chrome, right clicked to view the pop-up "view page source" and then copied and pasted all the html coding, from top-to-bottom.  Bingo.  And whew, what a relief! Thanks for the help!

    Hi,

     

    I went through the process of saving my Excel File as htm.

     

    I then copied from the first instance of table ( <table border=0 cellpadding=0  ) until the last instance  ( </tr>
     <![endif]>
    </table>)

    I pasted that in the HTML block but nothing at all happens.

     

    Any ideas please?

     

    Regards

    Alan,   

     

    I am facing the same problem, any luck getting yours to work?

    Re: How do I import excel tables into website builder V7?

    I fixed the problem by saving my excel file as HTML. I had to do some clean up using a text editor and some internet study of HTML coding to get it formatted the way I wanted. Then, in the GoDaddy editor, I would insert a HTML widget on the page and then copy the HTML text from the text editor and then paste it into the widget. This is a more trouble than it used to be but it works. Hope this helps to get you going in the right direction.
