Text to Excel: The Easy Way

Do you frequently copy text from MS Word to Excel? Do you dislike the way it pastes into the cells, causing a nightmare when it comes to formatting your pages? Want a quick solution?

Then try pasting your text as a picture!

In older versions of Excel, you’ll need the Edit menu, Paste Special choice.

In Excel 2007, on the Home ribbon, click the down arrow on the Paste button and choose Paste Special from the bottom of the list.

No matter the version, you can then choose Picture from the list and click OK.

Your text will then be placed in the worksheet as a picture, floating over the cells, with the same resizing and relocating capabilities as any other picture.

Formatting problems be gone!
