    Word 2003 Tables

    Hey All

    I don't suppose anyone knows how office 2003 tab delimits its tables if you pasted them into notepad etc? Office 2000 smegs them up something awful, like so:

    PERIOD 1 PERIOD 2 PERIOD 3 PERIOD 4 PERIOD 5
    Mrs VernonY12 ArtB3 to B2 Mrs VernonY12 ArtB3 to B2 Mrs VernonY12 ArtB3 to B2 Miss BoothY13 SociologyB3 to G17

    so it totally breaks if theres a newline inside the cell itself. Does Office 2003 have this problem too?

    Thanks

    A word table like this:



    Gives you this in Notepad

    Code:
    Cell 1	Cell 2	Cell 3	Cell 4	Cell 5
    Row 2	A
    Second line	b	c	d
    Row 3	e	f	g	h
    Row 4	i	j	k	l
    So I'd say yes, it does.

    ahh thats much better though, 2000 just ignores newlines inside cells and concatenates one line to the next :| at least 2003 is a bit more sensible

    Cheers for that
