I have difficulty making an Excel-readable file from a table on a Website. The problems very specific to my question are:

  1. I have to use IE 7 to access the site.
  2. Excel is installed in another computer.
  3. The site does not let me view the HTML of the table.

Normally, I would simply select the table I want and drag and drop it to Excel. Or, I would view the page source and copy the HTML data. Both do not work in this case.

Is there any handy tool out there?

Can you explain why yo have to use IE7? –  Gunnish Feb 21 '13 at 10:31
It has to be IE in order to access; electronic certificate and so on. I don't know if I can upgrade IE without much trouble with the site. –  amemus Feb 21 '13 at 11:50
I don't understand, the point that site does not let me view the HTML of the table, can you elaborate, is it a flash based site or something like that ? –  Lamb Feb 21 '13 at 12:14
Are you able to copy and paste the table data into a text file? –  CharlieRB Feb 21 '13 at 12:51
@Lamb "View page source" for the page where the table is on does not get table. It only show JavaScript or something. Yes, I can copy and paste the table into a text file but a lot of cells in the wrong columns. –  amemus Feb 21 '13 at 13:11
