Export a sheet Excel to a txt file

  Asked By: Lorenzo    Date: Sep 10    Category: MS Office    Views: 1242
  

I've got a sheet Excel which contains several columns and rows of
datas. I would like to export to a txt file but these contains the
data seperated by tabulation. I want that the datas separated by space.

I've tried the following method:
1/ I copy/paste to txt file,
2/ I copy/paste to word,
3/ I use replace tab by space for all the document.

It's too long time. Is there other method?

Dilimited)

I've just tried this method, but, it pastes the data by column in
putting several spaces between them. I want only one space  between
each data.

Try this.

(1) Highlight the range of data that you wish to export. Click
Edit/Copy.
(2) Open your Notepad Application. Click Edit Paste.
(3) save file  as type = Text Documents (*.txt)

I'd tried this method  of course, but, it pastes the data by column in
putting several spaces between them. I want only one space  between
each data.

The spacee between the column of data after you paste it in the
NotPad is called a White space  and if I understood you now that you
actuallly want a space as pressing the space bar then you can just
do a Find/Replace All for all white Space to a " ". Just do a Copy
at the White Space and place it in the Find Prompt and a " " as
pressing the space bar in the Replace Prompt. You do not need to use
Ms Word.
