Is it possible to create .sdf files from a table in Excel which contains molecules? When I try to “export table” the program fails (the export table button is not enabled), even though I have structures in the first column).
In order to export the information from the ChemOffice Worksheet to a SD file, you have to create the ChemOffice Worksheet in such a way that the first column in Excel must be the structure column.
1. So, name the First column as STRUCTURE (Say A1)
2. Now select the entire cells (both structure and other data columns).
3. Export the whole thing as an SD File by selecting “Import/Export” from ChemOffice menu/button then choose “Export Table...” from the pops up menu or Export Table button.
