Not sure whether this might be a Superuser or StackOverflow question... but I hope some Chemist can help me with this.
I have an Excel table with cells which contain comments "by Cambridge Soft". I assume that these comments somehow contain the ChemDraw data of the structure. It seems to be ASCII-characters only.
How can I get these comments into a .cdx file?
I tried to save these comments as a text file, renamed it to
test.cdx and tried to open it with ChemDraw... no success. I don't have ChemOffice available, which possibly might handle this.
So far, I haven't found any useful information about this on the web. The CambridgeSoft pages are not very informative.
Since these are quite a few structures I don't want to do this manually, but in an automated process. Python would be available. Any hints or ideas?
