Picture vs Autoshape

Post by jstevens »

When I copy a HTML table which includes a picture on each row and paste it into Excel the picture changes to an Autoshape.

I'm not sure why but the Autoshapes are not visible. I would like to format the shape as a picture.

Your suggestions are appreciated.
Regards,
John

Do you have an example table that we can use to test (for example in the form of a link)?

Hans,

The challenge was opening the HTML file from a compressed file (RAR). Once I extracted the files from the RAR file I was able to copy the table contents, paste into Excel without the pictures converting to an auto shape.
