Are there any replacements for the JFace TableViewer component that provide
the ability to cut and paste from the table into text files or Excel???

I know... we're not Microsoft!

BUT... this is a valid request from the users of the application that I
wrote and the previous version (VB-based) provided this funtcionality...

Regards,
Martin

Look at the clipboard functionality.

You'll need to figure out what Transfer types are accepted by Excel and come
up with a way to encode your data.
