Chapter 9. Tables: Organizing Your Pages > Converting Tables to Text

Converting Tables to Text

As you might expect, you can convert a table to straight text in paragraphs. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select the entire table you want to convert.

  2. Choose Tables, Convert Table to Text. The Convert Table to Text dialog box appears (see Figure 9.38).


    Figure 9.38.


  3. In the Separate Text With area, choose one of the following options: Paragraph Marks, Tabs, Commas, or Other. If you choose Other, type the character you want Word to insert when it comes to the end of each row.

  4. Click OK. Word converts the selected table into regular text, breaking at the separator you chose.
