The WP-Table Plugin for WordPress developed by Alex Rabe is a nice plugin that allows the admin to insert excel like table in WordPress Posts or Pages easily. If you are looking for a fixed version of this plugin that works on WordPress 2.5+ then read on.
The original WP-Table plugin causes a fatal error when activated under WordPress 2.5+. So this plugin needs a code fix in order to be able to use it on 2.5+ WordPress versions.
The Fixed Version of the WP-Table WordPress Plugin
The code fix that needs to be done for this plugin to work is explained on this site. But if you are looking to download a fixed version (where the code has been fixed) that just works right off the bat and you don’t have to do anything other then activating it then download this one.
There is a readme.txt file inside the zipped folder that explains the installation and usage of this plugin. Installation of this WordPress plugin is simple like most of the other plugins.

It’s important to understand that I did not develop this plugin and do not take any credit for this plugin. This plugin is not compatible for WordPress version 2.5+ (Produces a fatal error when activated). So all I did is fix the code so it works with WordPress version 2.5+ for me to use and is sharing it with you.
