You can select an entire table in different ways:

  • Click anywhere in the table. On the Table menu, point to Select, and then click Table.
  • Click and drag across the table to select all the table rows and columns.
  • In Print Layout view, move the mouse over the table, and then click the four-headed arrow at the upper left corner of the table.
  • Move the mouse pointer to the left of the table. The mouse pointer will point to the right. Click and drag down the left side of all rows of the table.


In your Word document, select the entire table that shows the data for the West Campus. On the Standard toolbar, click Copy.


On the taskbar, click the button to return to your Excel file. Click the sheet tab labeled West Campus.


Click in cell A1, the first cell in the first row. On the Standard toolbar, click Paste.

The information from the Word table is copied to the rows and columns in the Excel worksheet. Column sizes are not copied from Word into Excel. Compare your screen with Figure 2.6.
