Is there a software (an Excel plugin, Macro, ...) or any workaround to select table cells in an Excel Sheet, and to convert the selected cells to Markdown-Table Code, perhaps by copying it to the Clipboard.

The workflow should be similar to the MarkdownTableMaker Google-Spreadsheets Add-On (see screenshots there), but without need to upload anything to Google Drive (this is important when the user does not have a google account)

Can run on any OS, can cost anything.


I am sure that this could be done reasonably simply using XL-Wings which is an Excel plug-in that allows you to program in python within Excel.

You can add a button to run your python code and there is a function, (strangely enough called selection), to return the selected cells, there are then lots of python libraries for preparing various flavors of markdown.
