Well, I don't really post about tech stuffs. But I just found out this myself and I thought it is cool (I don't know others already knew this things or not.

Gmail is not really html based. So it is a quite annoying that it can't be copied and pasted, insert into email which usually in outlook can be done.

So someone from my office, asked me how to do (My office use Google apps, so email feature is exactly same as gmail). I tried a few things and finally I got this.

When I tried to find from Google "How to insert tables into gmail", I really didn't get perfect solutions though (some are like to use html software or things)

1. Copy tables from Microsoft Excel.
2. Paste into Microsoft Word (change page set up like landscape, pape size).
3. Copy from Microsoft Word again.
4. Paste into Gmail.
5. Send.

It is perfectly fine.

Directly paste into Gmail from Microsoft Excel

Border/Frame is not there. (Just now when I tried on other computer, it is worst even the format is gone when it is sent.)

Copy from Microsoft Word

When it is sent, the border/frame is inside. I don't think Gmail has feature to draw frame/border to create table. Isn't it?

    Interesting, I hadn't tried to insert a table so I didn't know this. I know you can create a table in Google docs, but I don't know if you can insert that table directly into the email or just save it as an attachment.
    That cute theme is so like you, haha. :) It makes my theme seem so boring (I use 'steel' theme). You seem to have a lot of ads, though. What browser are you using?

    Today I got emails inside with excel files. But I couldn't read its. Then I used the Google and nothing found. I was disappeared... But unexpectedly called me up a friend and told about some other things. He advised me this software - recover information in Excel. As he said it solved his problem for a minute and for free. My friend was quite right,because tool helped me too fast and easy. I hazard the remark that the software is easy to use.

    Yesterday I had problem with my working xls file. I couldn't solve it and went to bed. This morning my friend called me and by chance suggested - recover Excel file. He was absolutely right, the software resolved my trouble quite rapidly.

    This is the quickest way possible and the best of all.
    Rather than creating a google spreadsheet and copying the excel into it and then copying back to gmail, i find this is a much better way to keep the formatting intact and pretty quick!!!
