When I copy paste an excel table from excel into whatsapp web, I am losing the formating. This used to work like a week back, but somehow its stopped working and ever since I have done enough googling to see if there's some setting I need to restore either on whatsapp or on my browser(Chrome), but I have not been able to find the solution. I even tried installing firefox browser and check if it works there, but even that has not helped.

Yes it used to work earlier and now stopped for me also. Use snipper tool. Copy the content on word and use snipper tool, copy and paste

Snipper tool can be got by using the search option in Windows

Yeah, even I was wondering it had to do something with my setting. Have tried quite a few things, but unfortunately nothing has worked. Even tried copy pasting from google spreadsheet. Even that doesn't work

  1. Choose a Data Range which you want to Paste it in excel
  2. Go to Home menu in excel
  3. Choose copy as Picture
  4. Popup window will appear
  5. In that Popup window choose Bitmap.
  6. Now Paste it in whatsapp (Ctrl + V).

It will show as a image.

Simple ! Copy the whole page and paste it there and then on same page in picture formate ! It would seem a little different in regard to lines ! However when I upload it on what’s aap it appeared absolutely fine !👍
I think same goes for excel .....

Hello Mr. John Wesly,

I am not able to find the option of "copy as picture".
Please guide me.
I would be thankful to you in more than one way.
Thank you in advance.

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to get WhatsApp Web working again.
Check for WhatsApp Outages.
Check Your Internet Connection.
Check If You Have a Managed Wi-Fi Network.
Sign Out and Sign In Again to WhatsApp Web.
Update Google Chrome.
Check for Third-Party Extension Conflict in Incognito Mode.
