I created a bookmarklet for this purpose. You can get it at the URL below. Just drag the link to your bookmarks bar and then click it. It will create a link above each table to allow you to download that table as a CSV. One caveat is that it won't work in IE as IE won't allow data uri's for anything other than images ... haven't tried it on Microsoft Edge yet.

Okay, now that's brilliantly easy!

Thank you Davin, this works great! I second Milo's comment! Brilliant!

Thank you Davin, nice and easy. Great work!

It's worth noting that since I posted this answer there is now a free add-on in the marketplace for the server edition that will allow you to download a table as CSV. Link is below. Get version 1.1.3 of the add-on if you are on Confluence 5.x and the newest if you are on Confluence 6.x.

CSV Table Export

Thank you Davin, this works great!

I don't know of an easy way. There are two ways that do work though.

  1. Carefully select all the text in the table
  2. Make a new spreadsheet in Excel
  3. Select the first cell (A1)
  4. Paste

 

  1. Export the page as a Word doc
  2. Select the table (click the image2015-7-21 17:31:16.png that appears when you move the mouse cursor into the table
  3. Follow steps 2 through 4 above

 

The first one saves a step, but it can be VERY tricky to select all the text in a Confluence table.

You should try both methods as the resulting text style is different.

 

Thank you so very much! This works perfectly. You just saved me a lot of time for now and the future. You're great!
