Spreadsheet Copying - SOLVED THANKS!

Post by Kirsten » Fri Feb 25, 2011 12:03 am

Not sure how to formulate my question, which is of a general nature in that I have encountered it several times several places and each time concluded I couldn't figure it out.

Seems there should be a way...

Example would be the spreadsheet which comes up when I open "Sources" from menu bar and select Add/Edit.

That gives me a list of sources in spreadsheet format.
How do I copy this to get it into a spreadsheet of my own? (Numbers from iWork)

Even if this does not seem a particularly useful action to accomplish, I am interested because it serves well as an illustration of precisely what I'd like to be able to do.

Any solutions?

Hi Kirsten,

If you follow my other reply or just go to the menu item Reports.. Sources.. you can generate the list of Sources (and Citations) as a text file (RTF) or in spreadsheet form (CSV) and select an application to use to open the info.

It is perfectly possible to generate a Numbers spreadsheet this way.

Hope that helps,

Nigel

Yes, Nigel - it certainly does help!

Somehow because "Sources" is an item in Menu Bar I didn't catch that it was available under "Reports" as well.

Excellent!

Thank you,
Kirsten
