I am trying to analyze Wireshark TCP capture in Excel. I'd like to have some TCP info like TSval, TSecr, SACK edges in separate columns but it seems that since these values are stored in TCP options rather than in dedicated TCP header fields Wireshark does not create such custom columns.
I can see these values in the info column but they are shown only for client ACK packets. For server packets the info columns always shows [TCP segment of a reassembled PDU] and I need to see them in both direction. Any ideas how these values can be listed for every packet?

You can use custom columns with the following fields:
Or use tshark like this:
Hope this helps!

For analyzing TCP SACK Edges i used a simple trick which - although not perfectly effective - did the job in pulling out the desired info:
Use Export -> .csv to throw trace file data into excel readable .csv and import that Data into Excel. Then you have trace file date including coloumns as specified in wireshark.
The trick for pulling out SACK info for me was to use the "text to coloumns" button in Excel, which normally seperates comma-seperated stuff from inside one coloumn into many.
I marked the "Info" coloumn in Excel and replaced "SRE" to "$RE" and "SLE" to "$SLE". After that you can use "text to coloumns" and give it a user-defined seperator "$", which will perfectly pull out those Info lines containing SACK related edges and place it into new coloums to the right, each still labeled with it's RE or LE after stripping "$"
Hope that helps
