    Default Why doesn't Mr Excel HTML maker work? - Reply requested!

    I have downloaded the add-in, extracted the add-in to the Add-ins folder, UnBlocked it and installed it in Excel. I have a menu option called "MrExcel HTML Maker". On that ribbon is one group called "Generate HTML (Specify Options)". The options listed are:

    All Formulas
    First Cell Only
    First Cell in Each Column
    No Formulas
    User Defined Selection

    No other buttons or controls.

    I have tried selecting a range in a workbook, then clicking on various buttons, but whatever I choose, when I paste it into this forum, it comes out as ��.

    I am running Excel 2016/365 on Windows 10.

    Thank you for your help.

    Not sure why you are having problems, but it works for me.
    I selected a range clicked "First cell only" & then on the test board here https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/test-h...ml#post5267811
    I pasted the result (using Ctrl V).
    Can you reply to the thread in the test board & paste your sheet.

    I sporadically get the same problem. I haven't had time to figure out the specifics, but it has to do with how it sends the HTML to the clipboard. I can sometimes get around it by printing the HTML to the immediate window, then copying that and pasting it. Then there also seems to be a problem with how the HTML is formulated, since I have often have to clean it up. It's sporadic, and also seems to be related to computer settings. My work PC almost always has a problem, while my home PC rarely does. Based on some of the other posts I've seen here, where they post a table that has random HTML showing, other people are having the same issues.
    Cheers,
    Eric

    When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

    It's a bug with the DataObject and Windows8 and later. It seems to happen if you have a File Explorer window open.

    The random Html I see posted is normally the fonts and is what you get if you are using the old version of Html Maker.
    Test VBA on a copy of your data (remember you can't normally reverse the action)

    Please follow the forum Rules and Guidelines & please use Code tags around your code i.e. [CODE]your code[/CODE]
