Hi All
I use excel a lot, so I create this function to copy things to
clipboard:

CopyTable2Clipboard[expr_] := Module[{nb, expr2 = Map[NumberForm[#,
NumberPoint -> ","] &, expr, {-1}]//TableForm},
nb = CreateDocument[Null, Visible -> False, WindowSelected ->
True];
NotebookWrite[nb, Cell[ToBoxes@expr2, "Output"], All];
FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken[nb, "CopySpecial"]];
NotebookClose@nb];

I use it in one personal pack, so it's always avaliable when
mathematica starts.
My excel use comma as decimal separator, so I have to use this
Map[NumberForm[#, NumberPoint -> ","] part, maybe you not.
best regards
Murta
