Now, can anyone tell me about a spreadsheet program that understands commas as field separators when I paste? Or am I missing something...

Try copying it into a text editor, saving as a .CSV, then importing the file.

So of course, in the location I am at...(Iraq). I cannot access my Google Docs, which brings up a point that I had forgotten irritated me. Excel will only allow you to add 3 conditions to the conditional formatting. Pisses me off, especially since I spend so much time creating and managing excel sheets. rrrgh.

Smart001:

do you really need to assign a 'color' to '3'?....it's white!

So that narrows down the number of conditions to 4....

set all '4' to black and now you're down to 3 conditions and no more 'rrrgh'!!

I got it – the hard way. I had to use a program to do it (I wanted it to be a surprise so I never looked at these comments). Then it drew me a character that I saw some time ago on TV. I was pretty surprised that it only took me once to debug it. Well, so much for the hard way.

After reading the comments, I get a decent bart in emacs doing:

replace all ',' for ''
replace all '3' for ' '
replace all '1' for '.'

:)

Very nice... I like that one too!

I tried that in Google Docs, looks quite good :D
Don't try replacing | with something, it converts all the spaces instead!

mm, the challenge is to bypass the intermediary step of saving as a CSV – or text editor outright. For example, I can bypass the hard drive by copying to a text editor, search and replace , (comma) for t (tab), copy that and then paste.

Very funny
