You probably know the Tool TableTrick (http://staff.science.uva.nl/~jnunnink/tabletrick/). It formats your Excel tables into HT conference code.
Unfortunately, I do not use Excel but OpenOffice.org Calc. So, I could not use TableTrick.
Therefore, I have now programmed an OOo version (“OpenTableTrick”). It’s still a beta and I need some people who are willing to test it.
You can download it here:
It’s free, open source and GPL’ed.
If .oxt files are associated with OpenOffice.org, a double-click should be sufficent to install the extension. Otherwise open OOo, navigate to “Tools > Extension Manager” and add OpenTableTrick manually.
After installing the extension, you need to restart OpenOffice.org. After that, you will see a new toolbar in Calc. Just select the cells you would like to convert into HT conference code and press the OpenTableTrick button (a yellow star on green ground).If you like my work, buy me a beer.
