Convert Text into a Table in Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word has a function that lets you convert text into a table very quickly. Suppose you have a word list that you think would be better displayed in a table. All you need is a separator (like a comma, tab, paragraph, or any other character).

Just follow these steps:

  1. Select the appropriate text.
  2. From the Table menu, point to Convert and click Text to Table.
  3. From the dialog box that appears, select the number or rows and columns for the table.
  4. Under Separate Text, select the method you want to use for separating the text.
  5. Click OK.
Word will automatically put the text into table format using your specified criteria.
