Hey guys, we had the same issue for ages. Finally we found a great Chrome extension that can do just that.
It's called Table Capture and it provides coping to you clipboard the table data for pasting into Excel or Google Spreadsheet. Very comfortable.
It's not official Confluence or a plugin, but does a great job non the less.
I have created a browser bookmarklet that will allow you to create CSV files from an HTML table. It should work on pretty much any web page ... including Confluence. All you have to do is drag the bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar in your browser and then on your Confluence page click the bookmarklet. It will then create a link right before each table on you page that says Export to CSV. If you click that link it will prompt you where to save the CSV file and then you can open it in Excel and do what you want with it.
Old thread, but seeking an update from someone...
Using a "Document List" template on a Confluence page, one would think I could export said page to Excel, or at least a CSV file. Yes, I can copy the huge grid and paste it into Excel relatively easily. Just wondering if this integration would be provided for in the future.
User story: I'm tracking reports that need to be converted from technology A to B. I'm doing so on the Confluence page, but I cannot report on the grid because I cannot "quickly" export it to Excel.
It's still the same answer - Excel is not an analogue of an wiki page, the data doesn't translate easily. Any converter would be a huge amount of effort to get right as a generalised too, and there's little reward for most of it
You could write something that suits you reasonably easily, but you won't find an all-purpose converter because it's simply not worth it.
I think I can help you with an app available for Confluence called Excellentable. It allows you to have a fully functional, exportable spreadsheet right inside Confluence. So, instead of using a Confluence table, you can put your data into Excellentable and export it to display perfectly in Excel. You can also import an Excel file to display in Confluence!
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
