You probably know the Tool TableTrick ( It formats your Excel tables into HT conference code.
Unfortunately, I do not use Excel but 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, 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 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 OpenTableTrick Icon (a yellow star on green ground).
