Post a screenshot? Oh, not what you wanted to do?

One method that may work for you is to replace the spaces with "em spaces" and "en spaces" to get the alignment correct.

Code: Select all

<!ENTITY ensp    CDATA "&#8194;" -- en space, U+2002 ISOpub -->
<!ENTITY emsp    CDATA "&#8195;" -- em space, U+2003 ISOpub -->
<!ENTITY thinsp  CDATA "&#8201;" -- thin space, U+2009 ISOpub -->
Excel tables used to be able to be pasted into phpBB2 posts where html was allowed and with a table MOD installed, but unfortunately html is not allowed in phpBB3. With phpBB3 you have to use BBCodes. If you search through the Custom BBCodes topic, I believe you will find some table BBCodes posted. You may also find MODs in the Modification forums for table BBCodes.

A tool you may find helpful is the BBCode Table Generator.
