Export to Text
A very useful plugin for an editor - only one of its kind. (2 posts)

    Initially still had the same problem as with previous version

    SYLK: file format is not valid
    error when opening the downloaded text file in Excel.

    Problem solved:
    It's caused by having 'ID' as the first characters in the file.
    If you would move your 'ID' column to (? far right column as on WP dashpboard maybe?) the problem will vanish.
    Otherwise replace 'ID' with 'Jeez' or whatever in text editor before importing. Done.

    However, if I copy the

    genereted
    {generated} text and dump into Excel, it does not preserve the tabs - a block of text appears in first column.

    A handy plugin, man!

    If you have problems opening in Excel use the Data -> Get External Data -> Import Text File menu function.
