Tables downloaded from Internet are not convenient to store locally in HTM format. There are plenty of converters that can convert web pages to XLS format. But there is almost no server HTM converter that can provide converting features to multiple users. For those who need such functionality CoolUtils released Total HTML ConverterX.
It is a server version of desktop Total HTML ConverterX that converts HTM to XLS via command line, features various adjustable settings that help to get tables properly formatted and structured. You can choose the best option from the following:
Convert HTM files one by one
Convert all HTM files in batch to separate XLS files
Convert all HTM files in batch to one XLS file
The first option is suitable in case you have a few web pages that need to be converted to XLS with different settings. Mention that in this HTM XLS converter no GUI is available. So if you need to convert HTM files with the same settings, it is reasonable to convert all them together, by one single command. This will save a lot of your time. If you want to make a simple backup copy, then combining all files together will be a suitable solution that will help to save memory space. If you would like to use XLS copies as separate documents or simply the information is diversified and cannot be combined into one file, then converting each HTM copy to a separate XLS file will be preferable option. To convert HTM to XLS command line parameters should be specified. The settings are defined at the end of command. If to convert with default settings, no setting parameters are required.
If you would like to convert files via web interface, together with HTM XLS converter ActiveX should be used. This technology makes Total HTML ConverterX a part of web application wrapped into user interface. Download it here.
