Is there a 'full HTML formatting' option in the modern data import from web?

In the legacy 'import from web' wizard there is an option to import with 'full HTML formatting'. When enabled, this option causes, e.g., cells in an HTML table containing hyperlinks to be imported with the hyperlinks intact.

 

I cannot find an equivalent option in the modern web import process, so cells with hyperlinks just come in as plain text, without the URL. Does this option still exist somewhere, or has it been dropped?

 

I really hope I am missing something, because I have an application in which I really need to maintain hyperlinks in an imported table, but I would also prefer to use the modern import tools and data connections rather than the legacy import.

 

Thanks in advance for any help,

 

Mark

No there is not, but perhaps there is another way. Can you share the URL?

This question is a bit old.  do you recall if you found another way?

would love to hear it as i am running into this problem

Thanks
