Converting between table and text

Writer makes it easy for you to convert from a table to text (that is, replace a table with its data) or vice versa.

To convert plain text data into a table, select the data and then select Table > Convert > Text to Table from the main menu bar. The Convert Text to Table dialog box allows you to create a table. You must select the field delimiter (tab, paragraph marker, comma, or other printing or non-printing character) that Writer should use to divide data into different cells.

To convert from a table to plain text, select the table and then select Table > Convert > Table to Text. The data in the table is converted to plain text with the field delimiter of your choice. A space can function as a field delimiter.
