Word: Converting Text to a Table PSS ID Number: Q49818 Article last modified on 10-16-1993 PSS database name: M_WorD




The following information comes from an application note for Microsoft Word for the Macintosh version 4.0 titled “MW0167: Side-by-Side Paragraphs.” For information about how to obtain this application note, query on “MW0167” in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.


If you are importing a document from versions of Word earlier than version 4.0 that contain side-by-side paragraphs, tab-delimited text, comma-delimited text, or if you want to place some paragraphs into a table, you can convert the text to a table by doing the following:

  1. Highlight the paragraph or paragraphs to be placed into a table.
  2. From the Document menu, choose Insert Table.
  3. Select the appropriate Convert From option (tabs, side-by-side, comma, paragraph) for the text being converted, and the desired amount of columns and rows needed.
  4. Click the OK button to return to the document.

For more information on tables or how to adjust the sizes of the columns, see pages 362-375 in the “Reference to Microsoft Word” manual for version 4.0.
