Tables to Go

FireFox add-on OutWit Hub is great for exporting tables from the web into Excel.  It has a few quirks, but follow these directions and you’ll get good results:

After installing, you’ll get a new icon in FireFox:


Navigate to a page with tables and click the W button next to the address bar.

Highlight “tables” in the tree list on the left:


Click into the data panel at right and select all (ctl-A):


Right click and select Export Selection As CSV:


This will make a file that will open with proper columns and rows in excel.

Many other menu items, like copy cells and export to excel didn’t get excel friendly data for me, but knowing the above makes this a valuable tool.
