    Hi all gurus,

    I have information typed into word 2007, what i want to do now is insert all
    that information into a table with 3 columns and 10 rows. Is there a simple
    way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Not sure there is - you should have created your table first, then typed the
    information in!

    maybe copy/paste it into Excel first to parse it into table form, and
    then copy the 3 by 10 cell area back into Word.

    If you have something that denotes where each column should begin (such as a
    tab or any character -- you can even use a space) then you can select the
    content and use Insert/Table/Convert Text to Table. At the bottom of the
    dialog box you need to indicate what you want to use to separate the text
    into columns.
