Hi, vishal suri, I am confused, do you want to show the date as general date or just ###### in html file?

Would the complex HTML export include fill, font, line weights, etc? Also is the HTML for only the table, or for a whole webpage (like Excel mht)?

Hi, Peter, the complex HTML export including all formatting, if you select the whole sheet, it will export all sheet contents to html.
