XF 1.5 How to copy and paste Excel Spreadsheets?

Hi all,
I am trying to create a thread using tables from Excel. When I copy the tables and try to pate on to XF, it does not transfer any table formatting, rather just disorganized text gets pasted. And I also noticed I cannot attach excel files.

Any advise?

You will need table bb code in order to create tables.
Even then you won't just be able to copy and paste.

You can allow the attachment type in the options in the ACP.

Thanks Brogan,

I frequently use excel files and want to show it on the thread. Not as a picture (jpeg/png) but as text. Does not necessarily have to be in tables, but do want to show in correct alignment as columns and rows.

Do you have any suggestions on how to go about this?

If you frequently use spreadsheets might it not be worthwhile integrating with Google docs and embedding that way?

Looks a little complicated... like it involves more than just simple copy/paste from excel?
So does this mean all XF forums out there don't allow regular members to copy/paste tables on posts?

You can start a suggestion thread to get the function implemented. Ifcenough people like it then it will be considered.
