A table is a type of document that is used to contain information about a set of data. Each row of the table is called a cell and they are arranged in rows and columns according to the logical structure of the data that they contain. The table to text conversion is the process of converting a document from one format to another. The main purpose of the table to text conversion is to save on space and avoid wasting time on formatting documents that are not required. In some situations, the need for a table to text conversion might be non-existent while in other scenarios, it might be necessary for the client's content. We could use text to table converter to convert tables in Microsoft Word. However, it is hard for our users to get their hands on it so they need a tool that allows them to convert tables directly in the word. That’s why we have developed Table2Text, a java applet that lets you convert tables into text using any text editor or macro program.
This applet provides you with the basic functionality of simple conversion of tables into text documents by providing both native integration and easy conversion of the table data source.
Here are the steps to Convert:
1. Select the rows or tables you wish to convert.
2. On the Layout tab, click on the Data section, click Convert to Text.
3. In the Convert to the Text box, under Separate text, click the separator character you want to use in place of the column boundaries.
4. Click OK.
