Automatic Document Generation: extraction of HTML text from cells

Hi,

I have a spreadsheet with 2 columns [ 1) File ID 2) Text that includes HTML tags] (see screenshot).

I am trying to automatically:

  1. Extract the HTML text from each cell into formatted text
    2 Generate one document (HTML file or docx file) per cell that displays the formatted text

Is such app doable with AppSheet?
Thanks,
Julien

Doable? I think yes. Easily? I think no.

AppSheet has several extract functions but none to extract text from HTML.

You could create your own extraction process but it would likely get complicationed very quickly.

There may be some third party services you could use to perform the extraction - maybe into a second sheet - and then use that post-extraction sheet as the source for AppSheet.
