    How can I copy a table with its content from one of my hubs to another?

    I want to use it's headings and one of its columns for another broader hub that is based on some of the same information and I want to save myself frin the tedieus task of entering all the data all over again.

    Unfortunately there is currently no way to copy table capsules from one hub and place them in another. Hubpages does this to prevent people from making template hubs, hubs that are all very similar to one another and don't offer significantly different information.  I know you're not trying to doing that, but it's just the way it is for everyone.

      Can't I save somehow the table to css or something and then upload it to the new hub?

    You can export the table to a CSV file which then can be re-imported in another hub.

      I can't seem to find the way to export the table to CSV, could you explain how?

      Actually, I was kind of incorrect - sorry.  However, you can highlight the contents of a table, paste it into an excel sheet, save it as a CSV file, then import it into a new hub capsule.  I just tried it on one of my hubs and it worked fine.

    2 ways - 1 simple, other not so:

    1. just copy the text of your hub's table form the hubpage and paste it into an empty excel worksheet - the table format is preserved.  save as a CSV and import it to your new hub

    2. you can also do a "view source" by right clicking on any hubpage, then select the text that starts with  and ends with    you'll need to do a bit of editing to get this into a format that you can then enter into a new hub table  but it might save a lot of re-typing

      Thanks, now it's all clear. I'll use option 1.
