I love it! "Word-ness" is such a wonderfully descriptive term (epithet?).

I couldn't do without it. But for bringing in a single table (which I believe was the original query), I'll stick with the convert-to-text-before-copying method. In my experience it is quicker to apply clean formatting to the cells of one table that was built from pasted plain text than to fix all the Word-ness of a table that was pulled in as a table even if you have a tool that does most of the work. -Fred Ridder ________________________________ Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2014 13:02:42 -0400 Subject: Re: Word Tables to Frame 12Tables From: ljsims...@gmail.com<mailto:ljsims...@gmail.com> To: rob...@lauriston.com<mailto:rob...@lauriston.com> CC: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> And don't forget Rick Quattro's excellent TableCleaner plugin, which can help make cleaning up Word tables ever so much easier.
