Table2clipboard - copy/paste data like a dream

Table2Clipboard :: Firefox Add-ons

means I can cut and paste table formatted data from Firefox into Excel or notes etc with correct format.
In Ancestry.com I bring up a list of people in a census area I only want 3 or so and not all the columns - Table2clipboard means I can
  • Select Ctrl and hold.
  • Mouse over all the cells that you want to copy, they will be highlighted.
  • Right click on the highlighted cells and select "Copy Table elements"
  • Now paste into a note - into a spreadsheet - into an html editor.
  • I use Frontpage - you will now have an uncluttered table - I often having a table and use paste special with formatted selected
This is really an enormous tool - you have to use it to appreciate what a help it is
