Recently, I got a document (Microsoft Word format) from one of my friends which had some interesting data in a table. I intended to plot some graphs and do some analysis on the data and hence wanted to copy the table into excel. I searched for an automatic tool to do the conversion for me and found an interesting tool. The instructions to use the Word to Excel Conversion is explained below.
1. Click on the link below to visit the application
2. Select the upload button; a dialog opens to select the file on your computer. Select the Microsoft word file (both doc and docx supported).
3. Select the output excel file format. The application allows to save the data both in the old xls format and the new xlsx file. In order to preserve as much formatting as possible, select the xlsx format.
4. Click on the convert button; a popup will be shown with a link to download the excel file. Right click and choose save as to download the file to your computer.
