You can use a regular expression. The cells are separated by ``&´´  
characters. So it's easy to insert another `` &´´ after n ``&´´ have  
occurred ... Changing header and footer is simple manual work.

The regular expression describes that a line starts with a set of  
characters of which none is an ampersand. Then an ampersand follows.  
This repeats n times. This description is then replaced by itself  
plus an additional `` &´´. Something like ^\([^&]+&[^&]+&[^&]+&[^&]+& 
\) => \1 & or ^\(\([^&]+&\)\{n\}\) => \1 &.

If every cell has its own line, then it becomes complicated. This  
case can be transformed to a form that works by temporarily  
concatenating those cells that build one line to one line.



Some day we may discover how to make magnets that can point in any
