Convert PowerPoint tables to HTML


You have a table in PowerPoint and want to use it as a stand-alone web page or to include it as a table in another web page you're building. Saving the slide as HTML results in very complex, uneditable HTML that you can't easily use in another program.


Select the PowerPoint table you want to convert to HTML then run the macro below.

Sub TableToHTML()    
    Dim oTable As Table
    Dim oSh As Shape
    Dim lColumn As Long
    Dim lRow As Long
    Dim sTableHTML As String

    ' No error checking here
    ' It's up to user to select a PowerPoint table before running this
    ' Note: POWERPOINT table, not pasted Word or Excel tables

    ' Start table off:
    sTableHTML = "<html>" & vbCrLf _
        & "<head>" & vbCrLf _
        & "</head>" & vbCrLf _
        & "<body>" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf _
        & "<table>" & vbCrLf

    Set oTable = ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange(1).Table
    With oTable
        For lRow = 1 To .Rows.Count
            sTableHTML = sTableHTML & vbTab & "<tr>" & vbCrLf
            For lColumn = 1 To .Columns.Count
                sTableHTML = sTableHTML _
                    & vbTab & vbTab & "<td>" _
                    & .Cell(lRow, lColumn).Shape.TextFrame.TextRange.Text _
                    & "</td>" & vbCrLf
            sTableHTML = sTableHTML & vbTab & "</tr>" & vbCrLf
    End With

    ' finish up
    sTableHTML = sTableHTML & "</table>" & vbCrLf _
        & "</body>" & vbCrLf _
        & "</html>" & vbCrLf

    ' display the result in Immediate window
    ' Press Ctrl+G if you don't see the output
    Debug.Print sTableHTML

    ' Save to file
    Dim iFileNum As Integer
    iFileNum = FreeFile()
    Open "C:\Table.htm" For Output As #iFileNum
    Print #iFileNum, sTableHTML
    Close #iFileNum    
End Sub
