Default Copying Multiple tables from excel into a single word document


I Have certain tables of size 15 columns and varying no. of rows. I have to copy those table into word. when I try to copy a table into word, Iam only getting 10 columns, other 5 columns get cut because of word's size. How to copy that entire table into word with automatic resizing of colums according to word's size.

Hi dineshtgs,

In all probability, the tables you are having problems with are formatted for a landscape page and you're trying to insert them into a portrait page. Try changing Word's page orientation for the table pages. Alternatively, after pasting a table, click on it then choose Table Tools|Layout|Properties|Table and input 100% as the table's preferred width. Do note that this may distort your table's contents if they don't fit the reduced cell widths and some reformatting may be required.
