There are two straightforward methods for moving data from a Word document into an Excel workbook.
If you need to import data from a Word document into an Excel worksheet or perform a conversion from Word to Excel, do you have a fast method at your disposal other than copying and pasting? This guide will show you the two simplest approaches to completing the task at hand.
Word's Save As feature and Excel's From Text wizard can be used together to turn any Word doc into an editable Excel sheet.
To convert a Word document into an Excel worksheet: 1. Open the document in Word; click the File > Save As command; 2. Click Browse to open the Save As dialog; 3. Select a location to save the new file; 4. In the Save as type drop-down list, select Plain Text 5.
A File Conversion dialog will appear after you click Save to convert the Word file to text format; after making your selection, click OK to dismiss the window.
When you're ready to import data from a Word document into an Excel workbook, you'll need to enable the workbook, go to Data > From Text, and then, in the Import Text File dialog, choose the file to import.
4. Select Delimited, then click Next
Step 2 of the wizard's instructions ask you to select the delimiter you'll use to divide the data.
In step six of the wizard, you can choose the data format; if you don't need to make any changes, select the "General" option.
Then, in Step 7, select the Finish button. When you click the Import button, a dialogue box will appear asking where you'd like to import the text data. You have the option of placing it in an existing cell on the active worksheet, or creating a new one by selecting the New worksheet option. Click OK
Then the information from the Word document was transferred to the Excel sheet.
