Editing Tables with Excel and not column mapping correctly

If we take the Materials.qlt located in the \Table\ folder. And drag it and drop it into Excel for editing with the advanced filter methods.

When we drag the file into Excel and get this result:

This is a result of the Materials.qlt being in UniCode format (which is specific to Chinese language characters because they are in UniCode not ASCii) Most customers will find it easier to be in ASCii format instead, and editing with Excel will be more seamless.


Or in the registry like this:

Now to change this you need to be able to open the Table again in the Old Table Editor*, which is located in CabMaster in the \Utils\ Folder.

Once you have then opened the table with the Old TableEdit.exe* you can edit the Comment section to remove the strange looking characters (* can also be known as “TableEditV9.exe”)

So now once you have removed the strange looking characters which are required to let the table understand that it is in UniCode format, it will default back to ASCii format, which should also be changed in the registry.

Now if you drag this file into Excel you will see the column layout easier.
