Moving data from one application to another within the Microsoft Office Suite is a breeze. Because of the tight integration, components from Word are recognized in Excel, Excel spreadsheets are recognized in Access, Access databases can be imported into Excel. Let's start by taking a look at importing data from Microsoft Word. Because of the nature of the file formats between a word processing document and an Excel document, you can't simply open a Word file inside of Excel but of course you can create tables inside of Word, and text inside of Word is easy to copy and paste into Excel. Let's go to a Word document. This is a sample data document that you'll find in the Student Folders under Chapter 12. Here's a small table that was created inside of a Word document. We can select that table. I'm just going to go ahead and select the element, and use the Copy/Paste. Let's go back to Excel and we'll paste this in. As you can see, the table came in perfectly intact. You'll have an opportunity to do some formatting here. If you want, you can enhance this table with formulas and other Excel features.
