If you copy and paste data into a Word document, but you would prefer to see it as a table, it takes only a couple of clicks. If your data are delimited by spaces, tabs, commas or paragraph markers (¶), you can convert it to a multicolumn table.

Let’s say your list followed the pattern Name, Address, City, State, ZIP, Phone. Select all the data. Then, on the Insert tab, click the Table button. Choose Convert Text to Table and choose comma under Separate Text At. Presto! For a single column, multirow table, use the Paragraphs selection.
