HTML Table to XLS (Cell used for a formula)

I am doing an HTML table and I want it to be converted to XLS file

I am using this table for example

<table>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>EUR</td>
<td>300.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>200.00</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>AUD</td>
<td>**=SUM(A2:A10);**</td>
</tr>
</table>


Is there a way how I can create a cell with the
=SUM(A2:A10);
as a formula and not a normal plain text?

Answer

When importing html to excel, it is important to know that there are a variety of excel-specific attributes that you can use to get excel to perform pretty much like you would expect it to, for nearly any business requirement.

You'll need the excel namespaces added:

<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
</html>

And then you can create a formula in a table cell:

<td x:num x:fmla="=SUM(A2,A10)">0</td>

You can read much more about properly implementing these capabilities in this article: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/kaushikborah28/79Nick08302007171404PM/79Nick.aspx
