          Monarch Pro 9 ought to be able to handle the HTML document, but maybe there's something in there that's giving it a virtual headache.... :confused:

           

          Try opening the HTML document in Notepad, and then saving it as a .txt file. Does that file work better? It might be a bit more challenging to work with, but it might be a workable solution. Just an idea.

           

          Welcome to the forum, BTW.

              Hello Roger,

               

              HTML in Monarch can be a bit fiddly - Monarch reads the table structure of HTML to work out where the data is, but a lot of HTML generators use TD and TR tags to create whitespace for layout purposes. The result can be a pain...

               

              I'd suggest getting a free XPS printer driver from Microsoft, depending on your OS, and using Monarch v10 Pro. Alternatively, print the HTML file to PDF from your favourite browser.

               

              HTH,

                  I fixed the problem. I was exporting HTML from microsoft word, and I should have used "Web Page, Filtered HTML" and I was using "Web Page HTML"

                   

                  I guess regular web Page HTML comes out in CSS in in-line CSS formatting and stuff. too complicated for datapump.

                   

                  thanks for the tips!
