I have code that can bypass step 1 (8.1.9 probably can too since I think
that bug fix is in there).

If you are talking about getting an actual table, then it is possible but
may require some code to pull off. I would need to do some testing to
figure out what is on the clipboard after the spreadsheet copy.
