Hello everyone,

I don't understand why I cannot use the Copy As menu item and copy a  
table's contents as plain text and paste directly into a spreadsheet.   
It works nicely for some tables but not others.  Likewise, exporting a  
numeric table to a text file as "CSV" or "TSV" often gives me the  
table as a string with the curly list brackets as delimiters rather  
than commas or tabs (see below).

Is there any way to get tables into a spreadsheet easily?  Should I be  
using Do loops instead?
