Table Capture to Copy Tables from Wiki Page

From PhUSE Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page covers how to get and use a free Chrome extension to copy tables of information from wiki pages (any webpages, really). This can be very useful if you have any tables on the page, which might copy out wrong if trying to just select the content from the page.

Installation

Get it from the Chrome web store: Table Capture.

Usage

Once installed, it will appear on your toolbar on the upper right.
Click it, and, if there are any tables on the page, it will list them.
If you have lots and can't tell which one is which, mouse-over each line, and it will highlight the table in the page.
To copy the content, click the copy button on that line.
You can then paste wherever you want (e.g., Excel). (note: you may notice that there is an Excel button. Using the copy and then paste method above is simpler imo)
