Copy Excel to Word without creating a table

by Answers 2000 Limited

A common way of using Excel extensively is that you store paragraphs of text in a column of cells.

This works just fine, until you want to copy the cells into Microsoft Word: when you copy them they are inserted a series of table rows into your Word document, which may not be what you want.
  1. Highlight the cells your interested in the Excel spreadsheet using the mouse, and select Copy.
  2. Start Notepad. Paste the text into an empty Notepad document.
  3. The cells will appear as a series of rows of text, without table formatting.
  4. Highlight the text in NotePad, and select Copy..
  5. Paste the text into Microsoft Word.
If you copy the text using this via Notepad, any fonts set for the text will be lost. If you prefer to preserve the font choices of the original Excel cells, use WordPad instead of Notepad.
