If anyone can tell me how to convert a spreadsheet to a table, I'll put up a detailed table of predictions on Friday morning.


If you are doing a one-off, it's probably not worth the effort. It's much easier to just take a screen shot of a speadsheet, host it, and add it to your response as a picture.



but here's how you do it. I've added spaces in the bbcode commands so they show up and aren't interpreted as commands.

You have to make you spreadsheet output as a .txt file with the following additional bbcode inserted.

you must enclose the table with the commands [ table border=1] , where the number equals the pixel width of the border.
close the table with [ /table]

the table row command [ tr] must be at the start of every line of your table, with [ /tr] at the end of each line.

the table data command [ td] must be at the start of each cell, with [ /td] at the end of each cell.

You can get an idea of how a table looks in bbcode by clicking on the table button in the reply editor and filling in for, say, a 2 x 3 table, then filling in data between each [ td] [ /td] set.

You'll get:



Which outputs as:

1,1 1,2 1,3
2,1 2,2 2,3

(press the quote button on the post and read the text in the reply window)

After you have saved your new spreadsheet as text , open it in a word processor and cut and paste the outputed text into the reply window of the forum.


Easy, huh?

A good discussion of how to construct a spreadsheet that outputs that text is at http://www.mcgimpsey.com/excel/textfiles.html

Let's see - JMU over UP
JMU overcome by fear at UP

Is that it? Question

As for the spreadsheet info - Sounds impressive. I got completely lost and gave up after "spaces in the bbcode". He's either a computer genius or he's BS'ing everyone. Does anyone know for sure which it is?

Remember - coffee before posting out there.

I'm really afraid to click on the HERE. Someone else do it first and let me know if your computer crashes.

Did anyone see any familiar-looking Brazilian recruits at last weekend's matches??? Smile

And the winner is ...

Post by SoreKnees on Sun Nov 23, 2008 12:21 pm

... ohhh_yeah, with 7 of 8 correct predictions! Texas A&M beating Florida today finishes up the third round with all #1 seeds, two #2 seeds, and two #3 seeds still standing.

There were no clean sheets among our 14 prognosticators and only ohhh_yeah predicted 7 correctly. Runner-up honors go to Auto Pilot, who had 6 of 7 correct but did not predict a winner either way in the Va/Duke match: only one pick was wrong, but abstained from one upset. Par for this course was 6 of 8, attained by 8 of us.

OK, here are my guesses (nothing more than that!):

FSU will beat ND 2-1. (ND hasn't played anybody good in months. Each team has lost one key player to the U-20s.)

Stanford over UP 2-0. (Sorry guys. I hope I'm wrong, but I think this is just too big a hurdle on the road.)

UCLA over Duke 1-0. (This is the year that UCLA finally wins it all.)

UNC over Texas A&M 1-0. (Too much talent in baby blue.)

Although a newbie to this site, I hope you don't mind if i join in:

FSU over ND 3-2 (I agree with SoreKnees, Notre Dame has gotten soft with its easy schedule).

UP over Stanford 2-1 (Based on what I saw in the Stanford - Ritgers game, we can take em).

UCLA over Duke 2-0

Texas A&M over NC 3-2 (Probably wrong, but I'm tired of the ACC)
