Is it possible to insert a CSV or excel file, or even copy and paste a 'Word table' to create a table in an article. So far it looks to me that you have to add the data manually to the HTML table

I don't know what exactly you need and why. There's a table button in the text editor, tho.

What I would like to do is to prepare a Table in excel or word using all the editing and ordering facilities, and then be able to copy and past or import it into the article. I can't seem to do this with the simple table tool in the word capsule.

That's correct. A spreadsheet does not make an interesting article. If it is an important resource, however, you can first upload it and then offer it to your readers in our download module.

I found a way of doing it - make a table, convert it to CSV, open it in a text editor and paste it into
