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:
- Highlight the paragraph or paragraphs to be placed into a table.
- From the Document menu, choose Insert Table.
- 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.
- 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.
