|convert word table to excel table|
Cut and paste just doesn't work
does anyone know how I can convert a word table in to excel spreadsheet?
Would much rather not have to re-enter all those details ....
cut and paste just distorts the excel table ..
I would be grateful for some ideas or indeed a solution ...
I need to maintain the columns ...
There may be different (and better ways) and depending on what version of MS Office you are using, but one way is to:
* Save the Word document, that contains the table, as a web page
* In Excel, use the Data >> Import External Data >> New Web Query option.
This would allow you to select the table, from the web page, that you would like to import.
Copy/Paste should work,
When pasting try right click and select Paste Special, select Text as the paste option
