....to include an Excel spreadsheet into a hub?
I find that the 'tables' tool is not always the ideal choice, given that the column width cannot be adjusted, and if you have several columns, then folks need to scroll across to see the entire thing, and that is not desirable, in my opinion.
dang--don't know how to do that--I've tried, it's never worked, so I guess I'm missing part of what needs to happen...
blueheron may be on to something. Check if there is a save file as *.jpg/gif/whatever option.
Make your spreadsheet show full screen as you want it to show in your hub.
Make sure there is nothing above or below you don't want the public to see.
Then do the prt scrn button. The image is now in computer memory.
Then open one of the windows image editors.
Create new file.
Click on the screen to focus the cursor.
Then do ctrl-V. The image in computer memory should appear.
Proceed as usual.
Do you have Excel in MS Office? Create a board on there and and link it from there to a link capsule here. As long as it is not too large and meets all other standards it should be okay. Another option is an Excel tablet in Word and linked to here.
Ahh..yes, MS Office, but an OLD version... It's office 2000. There is no option to convert to a jpg. file...you can only "send to" desktop, mail recipient, etc....or "save as" a different name, and/or a few other files types, but no image types.
I'll try the print screen directions you gave, and see what happens. Thanks.
Did not work. Same thing that always happens. When I go to paste it into paint or another image program, the 'paste' is grayed out, as if there is nothing on the clipboard to paste.
DzyMsLizzy, try using Greenshot for screenshots.I use it it's amazing.
http://getgreenshot.org/downloads/ You can either save the file to your computer or upload it to www.imgur.com using it.
If that's not something you want to do, just as PD has already said, Print screen. Then go to paint > Right Click paste OR Ctrl+V. Then use the crop option of paint to select what you want and delete the rest.
I managed to get it done by simply highlighting the entire chart, then selecting 'copy.' I was THEN able to paste it into "paint" and save as a jpg.
Didn't know that you could copy it into paint that way. Thanks for the info too
I didn't know that you could copy text and paste it into Paint. I just did it with some MS Word text, and that worked as well. Just shows that there's probably lots of things that would work if we just tried them. Thanks for the tip.
I've never used Excel, but I'm thinking you could convert the spreadsheet to a jpg file. Then it could be put in a photo capsule. This was how I put in diagrams I drew in Word.
There are a bunch of "convert files" websites for doing this.
Dzy. Did you know Microsoft won't support MS Word 2003 and older? I have 2003 and had to buy a real confusing newer one that doesn't have a disk but a key for downloading it. I don't know what that would do to the security of the older ones. I noticed in this thread you have older version, and wanted to give you a heads up about it. Good luck with your issue.

How do I take a picture of a web page?

Can I embed the table code e.g. in a hubpage?I have tried it and it looked fine in the insert box, but once I hit the "insert" button the borders and divisions disappeared. Leaving just plain text. Since I do so many technically oriented comparisons between products a table format...

I've seen many hubs that include pictures of a screenshot (is that even the right terminology?) to help instruct how to do something on your computer or to just illustrate an example and I'm just curious as to how to do that; can someone help me out?

I need to capture my desktop tabs on a screen shot for an upcoming hub. How can I take a shot of my screen other than a video. A video would be easier for me. Pros and cons of a screen shot verses a video? Or should I have both for the reader?
