    Hi,

    I don't have any idea regarding the Text to Table conversion. But if you want to convert the Table into the text format then you can try the following three steps:
    1. First make the selection for the table rows which you want to convert into text.
    2. Then goto "Table Tools", then click on "Layout tab". Then you will get the option"Data group" , then select the "Convert to Text"
    3. The type any separator character in the text box of "separator character"

    Hello friends,

    There is very simple way available in the Microsoft word for this table conversion. You will also get the flexibility while table conversion. For example you can insert the comma the first word of the text file to make the table of two columns. You can find this conversion option in the "Table menu>>Convert>>Text to Table. Please also not that we also create the text data back from the table format. I hope this information will help you to convert the text in to table.

    Hello,

    I recommend you to use table conversion functionality only when your text data is in proper format. Suppose all your text data is like paragraph then your converted table will inappropriate. So before converting text into table, first align you text data into proper manner and then convert into table.Don't forget may suggestion during the table conversion.
