Converting Text to a Table

If you have existing text separated by paragraphs, tabs, or commas, you can convert the text to a table. When text is separated by paragraphs, tabs, or commas, it's known as delimited text, which is commonly used to delineate data for tables, spreadsheets, and databases. During the conversion process, you can select the character used to separate the text on your page to create a table.

Convert Delimited Text to a Table

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Select the delimited text you want to convert to a table.

Click the Table menu‚ point to Convert‚ and then click Text To Table.

Click the option to designate the character used to separate the text (commas, paragraphs, etc.).

Click OK.
