Radha, a search of the archives for this list and other lists that discuss FM (e.g.,techwr-l and techcommpros) will offer some good advice for this. O'Keefe and Loring's "FrameMaker 7" book discusses the process and the Table Cleaner plug-in on p. 187. Also, the document at http://www.techknowledgecorp.com/public/word2frame.pdf offers an excellent overview of Word-to-Frame conversion efforts, has a section on table conversions, and includes a Word macro at the end that can be used on a MIF file to facilitate the process.

Hi, I have to update an existing FM Book with new requirements. I am given a Word document with about 10 tables (and lot of other text content too). The size of the tables range from 5 to 40 rows and 3 to 5 columns. Is there a way to quickly copy/import that Word table data into FM tables? My FM files have named, designed tables. Using FM7.0 with XP. Thanks for your help. Regards Radha __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
