    Copy and pasting table into .txt document or Excel

    markb87780004

      Hello,

       

      I get emailed a daily report which has tables (rows and columns).

       

      When I select the table, and copy, if I paste it into a .txt doc or even excel, the pasted data by row  is pasted as column.

       

      Does anyone know how to get the table to paste correctly as it originally appear in Acrobat?

       

      The same results happen if I save as .txt, excel, or WORD format.

       

      For instance, the .pdf report shows as:

       

      Title Column 1          Title Column 2          Title Colmun 3          Title Column 4

      row1 Column1          row1 column 2          row 1 column 3          row 1 column4

      row2 Column1          row2 column 2          row 2 column 3          row 2 column4

       

      Selecting the above and pasting results in:

      Title Column 1         

      Title Column 2         

      Title Colmun 3         

      Title Column 4

      row1 Column1         

      row1 column 2         

      row 1 column 3         

      row 1 column4

      row2 Column1         

      row2 column 2         

      row 2 column 3         

      row 2 column4

       

      It does not matter if I copy paste, copy with formatting, or save as different file format ; The results are the same; tables and not reproduced correctly in other formats.

       

      Does anyone know how to fix?

       

      Thanks,
