Did you know Word 2010 has a single click feature that converts Tables to Text? Don’t feel stupid if you didn’t. Microsoft Office / Word 2010 is packed full of so many features, everyday I’m still finding things I never even knew existed. Anyway, let’s take a look at this quick tip in Word starting with a groovy Screencast and followed by the typical screenshot step-by-step.
Step 1 – Convert Word 2010 Table to Text
Click anywhere in your table. Look for the small move icon on the top left of your table to ensure you’ve selected it.
Click the Layout Tab on the Word 2010 Ribbon and Click Convert to text.
In the newly appeared window you can choose with what to delimit your text. The three default options are Paragraph marks, Tabs and Semicolons, but you can delimit your table contents with a custom symbol of yours using the Other option. So choose whatever you like and click the OK button.
Your text is now converted and ready for E-mailing!
