Fault-tolerant spreadsheet import
Mar 01st, 2009, 9:31am
I often paste spreadsheet tables into Tinderbox so that I get one note for each row.  If there is an error in a row then Tinderbox pastes the whole table as one note, rather than as individual notes.  Troubleshooting the problem can be tricky.  It would be useful if Tinderbox would create notes for the rows that are error-free, and for rows that are not error-free it would create a note named "ERROR AT ROW xx".

I have no idea if this is possible.  It sure would be useful, though.

I *think* that, if you simply make sure there are no empty cells, all will be well.

(Empty cells are a problem, because it can be hard for Tinderbox to distinguish a spreadsheet with lots of empty cells from a tab-delimited outline, or indeed from straight text that happens to have a lot of tabs!)
