Converting Text to a Table
When you have lists of information that you think would look better—or make more sense
to your readers—in table format, you can easily convert the text to a table. Select the text
in your Word document and then on the Insert tab, click Table. Then choose Convert Text
To Table.
The Convert Text To Table dialog box asks for input similar to that requested in the Insert
Table dialog box. You specify how many columns and rows you want to use, how you want
to use AutoFit, and finally, which characters have been used to delineate the individual text
entries. That is, which characters instruct word that the text following the character should
be in the next column (a tab character, for example). Click your choices then click OK. Word
makes the text into a new table.
