Re: Table to text in Office 2013.

To respond to your question please see below.

Convert a table to text

1.   Select the rows or table that you want to convert to paragraphs.

2.   Under Table Tools, click Layout > Data > Convert to Text.

3.   In the Convert to Text box, under Separate text at, click the separator character to use in place of the column boundaries.

Rows are separated with paragraph marks.

If you don't see the number of columns that you expect, you may be missing a separator character in one or more lines of text

Here’s what my friend asked, can you help, please?


I'm trying to convert a table to text. I've highlighted the table but I can't find a menu item for tables on the ribbon.


Best from,
