I want to copy my HTML table elements to the clipboard. But I have used div tag inside the td tag of the table. I think that what adding a new line after pasting the contents from clipboard. I want that to stay in the same line. Please help how to make it possible.

What I have tried:

Sample Output

ProfileUID : 12345
First Name : John
Email : John.doe@xyz.com
Profile Status : Enabled
Country Code : United States (+1)
Phone No. :
+1- 456789125

Last Generated OTP : x5xx555
Employee ID : 223344
User ID : johndoe

Required Output

ProfileUID : 12345
First Name : John
Email : John.doe@xyz.com
Profile Status : Enabled
Country Code : United States (+1)
Phone No. : +1- 456789125
Last Generated OTP : x5xx555
Employee ID : 223344
User ID : johndoe

Have a look at the Phone No. texts in both the above outputs.

index.html

<pre lang="HTML">

<div style="margin-left: 2rem">
	<button class="btn btn-primary" type="button" style="background-color: #001872; display: none" onclick="copyTable(document.getElementById('table'))" id="copy"> class="fa-regular fa-copy" id="table" align="center" name=""> </button>

both your Html and Js go too often with naming convention errors :
you use keywords ( protected ) as names for vars, let's see :
id="table"
var body / range

close your functions calls by ";" => onclick="the_function();" it will be usefull when you have more than one function to call by onclick for example.

to help you to use clipboard : read that page
