If you have text that is already formatted into rows and columns using tabs, commas, or any other consistent character, you can easily convert it to a table in Word 2013 with just a few clicks.

Existing text must be delimited with a consistent character to separate columns for conversion to succeed. (By "delimited," we mean "separated" using a regular pattern. ) The most common methods of delimiting data are tab stops and commas.

Converting text to a table in Word 2013 is as easy as a few clicks, provided that the text you wish to convert is already formatted into rows and columns using tabs, commas, or some other consistent character.

\n

In order for the conversion to take place, the columns in the original text must be delimited using the same character. (By "delimited," I mean "separated" using a regular pattern. The most typical methods of delimiting data are tab stops and commas.

\n

In this figure, for instance, some of the data from the prior exercise is shown as a delimited text file in Notepad (a text editor), formatted as three columns with commas marking where each column should break.

If you already have some text that is separated into rows and columns with tabs, commas, or any other consistent character, then you can convert it to a table in Word 2013 with a few simple clicks.

Any existing text that needs to be converted must have regular column breaks defined by a single character. (By "delimited," we mean "separated" using a regular pattern.) Data is typically separated using tab stops or commas.

Some of the data from the last exercise is displayed in this figure as a delimited text file in Notepad (a text editor), with commas indicating where each column should break.
