Can anyone suggest some ideas to add a excel table to the print composer which will then be exported as a A3 png while retaining resolution. Attempted pasting in word as an enhanced meta file then saving it as a png > adding to composer, also tried exporting the table as pdf then converting to SVG in Inkscape (which retains resolution / scalability but doesn't render text in columns correctly).
- Save your excel file as CSV file
- go to
Add Vector Layerin QGIS and navigate to your CSV file and load it
- In the print composer, go to
Add attribute table, as you can see below:
- Select the
Source from Layer Featurefrom the window in the right,as shown below:
- You can change the font and formats based on your needs, and here is final output:
In QGIS 2.14.3 there is an extra option (Advanced Customization) that you can change the background color of the header, rows (even OR odd), columns (even OR odd), as you can see in the image below
It will create something close to what you need
You mention you're using inkscape so you could try flipping your method round rather than doing it all in QGIS. Have you tried exporting the composer to an SVG, open it into inkscape and then import the formatted table as a png?
