Thank you so much for the excellent Addon.

I notice that when I copy a table containing links in FF 4.0 using Table2Clipboard 1.5.2 the link becomes slightly corrupted.

The original link in FF is:

https://localhost/nagios/cgi-bin/extinfo.cgi?type=2&host=localhost&service=memory

but for some reason, when I copy the table in Word 2010, it does not bring across the cgi-bin/ portion. Instead it looks like this:

https://talsv501/nagios/extinfo.cgi?type=2&host=localhost&service=memory

    I've tested the localhost link and everything works correctly.

    I've tested under WinXP, Wiod 2003 and Excel 2003

    BTW Table2Clipboard doesn't convert "localhost" to a server name like "talsv501" so maybe you Word version is so smart to do it.

    Have you tried some non Microsoft applications? For example OpenOffice?

    Sorry dafi, the hostname thing was a typo. -See my correction made shortly after posting. My apologies for the confusion.

    The part that is a problem is the dropping of the "cgi-bin" when pasting. -See corrected post begining with the word "CORRECTION"

    This issue happens using Word 2010 on Windows 7.

    I haven't tried non Microsoft apps -they are pretty strict with our desktops at work, and I don't use Microsoft at home.

    I'm sorry but I can't test T2C on Word 2010, I've only Word 2003 and the link is copied correctly (it includes also the cgi-bin portion).

    Fair enough.

    I should point out that I never had a need for the addon when I was copying tables from FF to word 2003. It wasn't until Word 2010 and FF4.0 on W7 that I was forced to hunt around for an addon.
