    Marker (page number) to text

    Apurva@Cygnet Level 1

      I want to cut some data from InDesign to Excel worksheet. In InDesign it is tabular data where columns are separated by tabs and rows are separated by end of paragraph, One of the column is a running header and one column contains page number (inserted a current page number marker). When I cut from InD and paste in Excel or any other plain text editor, the current page number is not copied. Is there a way of converting Marker to Text in the the way one can convert Variable to text. Any other workaround for this? I tried printing it to a generic plain text printer, it can export the number but the whole layout is gone and unnecessary spaces appear between the character. Creating a PDF also works, but from there I can't get a proper tab delimited file...
