I couldn’t for the life of me work out how to do this. I’d found out how to convert text to table pretty easily: select text, click on the ‘Insert’ tab, click the down arrow under ‘Table‘ and select the option to ‘Convert text to table‘. But how to do it the other way round?
Here’s what you do (taken from Word 2007 help):
- Select the rows or table that you want to convert to paragraphs.
- Under Table Tools, on the Layout tab, in the Data group, click Convert to Text.
- Under Separate text at, click the option for the separator character that you want to use in place of the column boundaries (eg tab).
