Copy and paste your Excel Sheet columns into the online tool Tableizer.com. Then compare the HTML table code with my (first) lines. Use my code if you want to have clean code to put in your content management system (CMS). Watch also the video’s in this posts by Gerben G van Dijk.

3. Excel to table via Iframe embed

It’s not so good for Google Search, but it’s also easy to make a table out of Excel via Microsoft OneDrive. The table will be a Iframe embed. Example here, see Iframe code under it. And also read support post from Microsoft about HTML tables via Iframe embed. In a similar way you can embed a table with Google Docs.

Table embed via iframe code, example, Microsoft OneDrive:

For this ‘HTML table’ this iframe code is used (example):

” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” width=”550″ height=”346″></iframe></p>
