Edit text in a picture in Word (to be pasted into Excel)

Postby ZWMxNw » Thu, 21 Aug 2008 13:12:01 GMT

I have a word document which contains tables of data. When I am trying to 
copy the tables of data to Excel, I am right clicking the mouse and it has 
options to copy a picture. So while the data appears to be a MSWord table, it 
is actually a 'picture'.
I want to just grab the raw text, paste it in excel and start some analysis.
Any suggestions how I can edit the picture and get the raw text into Excel?

Paste special > html format will  insert the table content as a table.

When I try paste special, I don't get HTML as an option to select, rather:
Picture (PNG)
Picture (JPEG)
Picture (GIF)
Picture (Enhanced metafile)
MS Office drawing object

Did you select the table before copying to the clipboard?
Which versions of Word/Excel are you using?

1.Editing a Table Pasted from Excel into Word as a Picture (Enhanced Metafile)

Hi:

I am copying a section of an Excel Spreadsheet, and then pasting into
word using Paste Special -> Picture (Enhanced Metafile)

When I right click on the object in word, one of the menu choices is
"Edit Picture" This will allow me to change text in the picture, which
seems to be included through the use of text boxes.  I make a minor
change that is required, but then I cannot seem to revert the image or
picture back to its previous form, which seems to be as a normal
picture file that has been inserted.  The only way I can figure out
how to do this is by using the undo command, but I loose my text
chance.  If the picture stays in the new, editable format, whenever I
click into it, all of the text is becomes highlighted, which really
slows down my ability to continue work on the rest of the document.
The new format seems to be seen by word as a Drawing Canvas.

Does anyone know how I can make a text change, and then get Word to
see the image as an inserted picture file again as opposed to this
drawing canvas?

Thanks,
Brooks

2.Editing a Table Pasted from Excel into Word as a Picture (Enhanced

If you need to edit the text in the table, I'd recommend pasting special as 
an Excel worksheet object, not as a picture.  It'll show as a metafile 
anyway, but when you need to edit you can edit in in Excel.

4.Cannot Edit pasted Picture in Word 2003

I recently rolled out Office 2003 to my organization and when we used to be 
on Office 2000 we would be able to take a print screen and paste it into 
Word. well now since we are on Office 2003 once the picture is pasted into 
the word document, you cannot right click on the picture and hit edit, EDIT 
is grayed out. How can I get this EDIT option available to me?  Any help 
would be appreciated Thanks
