The import facility of Excel or Word Document is only on a PC system of Dreamweaver.
File >> Import >> Excel Document
File >> Import >> Word Document
For mac system I understand this facility isn't there. What can you do about this?
1) Get hold of a PC and download a trial version of DW and import the file(s) and you are done;
2) Ask a friend to do it for you;
3) Post your excel file online and some nice guy like Nancy, john or Murray will help you out.
Good luck and let us know if this has given you some more ideas to explore.
You could definitely import from Excel into DW CS5, retaining all editing functionalities for your cells even on a Mac.
Save your file from Excel not as .xlsx or .xls, but as .csv
Open DW, File > Import > Tabular Data > Choose your CSV file, Delimiter as Comma, Table width - you could choose to customize if you want or DW will by default fit the rows/ cells to the data length, choose other styling such as Padding, Spacing, Border, etc.. Hit OK. You're done!
This sounds more like a solution. I have worked with .csv files when importing data form spreedsheets into outlook. I am going to try this asap!!
As for the import command for excel/word files not being on a mac.. that is completely ridiculous. Adobe needs to get it together on that. I did spend my money on the last 3 versions of DM just so the mac edition doesn't have a seemingly essential tool that the Win verison does. Pretty Stupid.
What you could do for Word files is to copy the content of your Word document and hit Cmd + Shift + V (Paste Special) to retain all your Word doc's formatting into DW.
Thanks man... i really appreciate it
Well the table imported just fine. But it doesn't fit into the div tag that i have alloted for the table. In the importing options i change the table width to the appropiate size. But it ignores the change. I cannot save any formatting changes in the .csv file since it it stricly data orientated.
I am not sure why the dreamweaver import tool will not oexecute the changes set in the import tool.
Can you post a screenshot of how it looks like after importing?
Also, send us your CSS and HTML. I'll see how I can help.
The code says the table should be 600%.
I think it should read 600px.
hmmm the setup panel too... ive done this several times at 600px adn get the same result. i'll try again
Can you change line 106 of your product_page.html to say:
<table width="600px" border="1">
This should set it to 600px. And what is the width you've specified in your CSS file for product_linecard?
After setting to 600px, if your columns get chopped, set width for each of your <td> to 150px if you have 4 columns. 120 if you have 5 and so on.. This should give equal column widths for all columns.
