Is there a way to post a table from excel into the text of a post? something else I can do to get a similar result?

I'm thinking there was something I did on another site to get it to work, but i can't remember what it was.

Thanks.

You could use the "Print Screen" function to capture the image of the table and then copy that into Paint (or similar program) and then attach that to your post -- or download / upload the image via a program such as Image Shack, Photobucket, etc.

The search may come up different for you. What you want to do is

PUT EXCEL DATA THAT IS NONINTERACTIVE ON A WEB PAGE.

Excel Help

Search keywords: chart web page

Choose: Put a chart on a web page

In the instructions, there should be a link: You can also put a chart on a web page so that others can only view the data.

Follow the instructions.

You will have to use a host to upload the chart to. Then you can display it in a WNY post the same way as a photo.
