I added a Generic text printer, then saved the Table View to that printer.
I then renamed the saved file with a .txt extension.
I was able to retrieve it into both Monarch and Excel.
It will certainly be a big help for my particular need.
(If only I had keyed the names of seller/buyer by last name, then first; I'd
be able to easily and accurately sort the data as I merge the data of
various tables. It may be worth it to go to each deed and re-do the to/from
for much greater ease in working with/sorting data.)

One possible thing to help you: Print to a file which you can then
into the Excel spreadsheet. You need to add a text style printer
you don't really have one) but specify "print to file".
When you print,
configure it to legal paper size and landscape so all the data fits. The
text file would need some editing, I believe, like replacing spaces

You can copy/paste groups of deeds in the table view, unfortunately, it
pastes them in reverse order.
Alternative: Open the file in WordPad or NotePad, since it is a text file.
You can use WordPad to cut and paste any amount of deeds at once.
