Hey, I am trying to do something I use to know how to do but I cannot figure it out.. I am trying to take data that is in a table format off of a website and create a spreadsheet. I did not create this website.. If I could just copy the source code and put it into the spreadsheet that would be great. but the code copy and paste it doesn't work. How do I do this? if you need the website I can give that to you.. Thank you..

do a(n) sql dump, clean up and convert it to a file.csv and try importing it into excel.

Sorry misread your question . . . maybe export the source, do a find and replace <td>s for commas, save as a csv file and import into excel.

- get source code.
- find and replace <td>s with commas, <tr>s with line returns
- save as file.csv
- open in excel

or something like that.
