Word: Getting an Excel table into WordJuly 10, 2013
Typically, you have two choices when you want to insert an unlinked Excel table into a Word document:
- insert it as an image (Note: you can’t modify it in Word once inserted); instructions are here: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/excel-save-a-worksheet-as-an-image-file/
- insert it as a Word table that you can modify later in Word; instructions are here: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2009/06/05/word-2003-import-an-excel-2003-table/
The choice you make will depend on what you need to do – or not do – with the data once it’s in Word. If you don’t need to modify it, then insert it as an image; if you do need to modify it, then insert it as a Word table.
