Google Docs – Pasting Tables

As I am moving most of my documents over to Google docs, I was having trouble moving some of the tables.  I would do a copy and paste and the data seemed to move, but not the table lines. Here’s my solution.

  • Open the document/table in Microsoft Word.
  • At the top left of the table select the entire table by clicking on the icon at that spot.
  • Change ALL the borders and grids to something like 3 pt. – (Right click on the table and choose borders.)
  • Now do a copy of the entire table.
  • When you paste the table now into a Google doc, it will appear correctly and the lines will show.
