      Hi Carl

      Sorry no. I didn’t run the report and all I have is the HTML output..

      I might be able to get the guys to rerun it with the text option but it’s a large environment and has some pretty intense change control processes even just to run a report.. So I was looking for a quick way to extract the tables into a collection of CSV files..

      Hi Carl

      Really fantastic work with this. I’m trying to get the resultant HTML imported, or at least the tables in into PowerBI to do some funky reporting… Do you have any ideas on an approach.

      PowerBI itself bleats that the html requires activescripting on which I’ve tried with no luck.

      If I could get it converted to JSON or XML I would be golden, I think.

      Once great work..
