Hi there! I am Pramod , a junior member of the forum. I have a problem and wonder if anybody can help me. My office work requires me to convert excel files to text files. But I have no idea how to do this. Can anybody help ?
Simple answer is, go to "save as..." in the Excel file menu, pick on of the .txt options in the "Save as type:" dropdown and that's it.
But I guess it depends what kind of data you got in the file, and what it will be used for - depending on which characteroistics need to be preserved, you should either save as .CSV file (comma separated values), or tab-delimited .txt file.
Hope this helps.
You may select the info from exel with the mouse or otherwise (Select all) and copy or drop it into a txt document, but the actual make up will get lost. It is wiser to transfer the exel file into a word document without losing the table structure. You can even import a exelfile to word.
