Thank you qlikuser14! I agree that it is a viable option to explore.
Unfortunately, I am not trying to import an HTML page but copy a portion of the HTML page that is a table as a data source. This table is generated whenever I do a search and would like to paste the results and make it available each time into the QlikView Desktop data source.
Even if that was not my requirement, what should I be seeing when click on "Paste Special"? If I don't see anything popup, should I assume it is a bug in the tool and move on, hoping that it will be fixed in the next release?
