Another way. Here is a different, possibly better way to deal with the problem of the height (e.g. 5-11) being converted to a date (e.g. May 11, 2004) when copied to Excel. We copy to Word, do a replacement, then copy to Excel. Copy and paste tabled data from website to Microsoft Word.
Replace 5- with 5, and 6- with 6,. We could simply replace – with , but we want to make sure there are no –’s that we would want to keep. If there were phone numbers or zip codes even this precaution would be good enough.
