Table converter

Welcome to the Table converter.

Sometimes you'll want to present a lot of aligned data, for example from a spreadsheet program (like Excel, OpenOffice Calc, etc.) and it can be a pain in the neck to present it on a forum or wiki in a friendly-to-read way. Maybe you'll just want to convert it to HTML but those programs always add a lot of wierd formatting.

This page is here to help you out! After five easy steps below you'll just need to copy/paste the result to where you need it posted and you'll have a nice, neat table :-)

Note: Most Internet forums use BBC code (Bulletin Board Code) for formatting your text.
