How can I get the Event Description to show normal text rather than a mish-mash of HTML? It didn't use to do this, but something has changed and I don't know what. Any help much appreciated! Charlie

I would suggest editing the event to remove the existing description and re-typing whatever you want. If you pasted the existing description from another program (like Word) it might cause the behaviour you describe.

When I import my calendar to Excel I get unwanted HTML in Event Description. Is there a way to get it so it's just plain text? Or do I have to subscribe to a premium service for this? I have the basic right now.

Thanks!

No; there's not a way to strip out the HTML right now, though Excel should still be capable of displaying it. Would you mind pasting a sample in this thread?

How are you creating the file you import into Excel? From

?

I am playing around with a few ideas, but Excel 2007 seems a step backwards from 2003 in terms of making it easy to work w/ HTML.

Yes, I'm using that export link. I do not have the premium service, I don't know if that would make a difference.

No; the premium service wouldn't make a difference. It seems something a bit particular to Excel. Are you using 2007? 2003 had a "paste special.. paste as HTML" option which I could suggest as a workaround, but 2007 doesn't seem to have it anymore.

I am using the 2003 version of Excel. I found the paste special option, but not the paste as HTML...

Paste as HTML should be a selection under Paste Special. My thought was to copy the html-containing column on the clipboard, and then paste it back on top of itself as Paste Special...HTML. I don't have 2003 anymore so I can't try it out. But I'll keep looking for other solutions.
