Re: [NTB] HTML to text (tables)
- Hi Margaret,
>What is a "table wizard" ???In short, it is a tool to make HTML tables found in the HTML
Library. Press F4 and the window that closes or opens (depending
on the state it is in) is the Clipbook. It is like a wrapper for
the Libraries. Press the HTML button at the bottom of the screen
on the Libraries Bar to make the HTML Library active in the
Clipbook. Clips are all the items listed in it. Read Clip
Basics to see how to make some basic Clips.
>All I do is open an HTML file and click on the chain link on theOK, I understand you now. You are using the "Strip HTML" tool
and tabs are not preserved. That is true. I forget exactly when
it was changed or a bug entered in (I think the first is
correct), but if you will go to http://www.fookes.com and look
under other software for the 32bit MiniNoteTab (Freeware) it
should preserve the tabs for you. I tested in v2.63e which
should be the same as what is online now. I did notice there was
a tab and then a space, but that would be easy enough to take
care of with a S&R. It will only handle 41kb files though. You
are correct that v3.x of Pro also preserved the tabs.

NoteTab does try to create the text file according to the HTML
though and not the hidden characters which are indeed stripped.
>If Clips is the right place, what do I ask them?If the HTML files are basically all the same, a Clip could be
built to get the <TD> fields for you and make the delimited file.
I don't have the time for it myself and my head is foggy due to
sickness, but you might get a taker for it. You would need to
post the an example of the <TD> fields, just a few of them or one
record. Perhaps my terminology is not correct. Post enough so
they can make one line with tabs separating the fields and give
an example output that you are looking for. It should not be to
hard to write at all.
