Convert text into a table

Word 2003 contains tools that enable you to convert text to a table, or convert table data to text. These saves lots of time cutting and pasting data in your Word document.

When converting text into a table you will need to specify a character to be used to seperate the text into columns. This character is usually a comma, space, or tab. For example, if the character is a comma, Word will start a new column wherever it sees a comma.
