How to Change a Word 2007 Table into Text

You can easily change a Word 2007 table into text. When you do, the Convert Table to Text dialog box allows you to fine-tune the results; for example, you can separate the final text with paragraph marks or tabs.

1

Click the mouse inside the table you want to convert to text.

2

Click the Layout tab under Table Tools.

You’re cookin’ now.

3

From the Table group, choose Select→Select Table.

Your table waits . . . to return to its original text state.

4

From the Data group, choose Convert to Text.

The Convert Table to Text dialog box appears.

5

For shorter text, ensure that Tabs is chosen in the Convert Table to Text dialog box.

If the table's cells contain longer expanses of text, choose Paragraph Marks. That makes the text look more attractive after the conversion.

6

Click OK.

Bye-bye, table. Hello, text.

As with converting text to a table, some cleanup is involved. Mostly, it’s resetting the tabs (or removing them) — nothing complex or bothersome.
