Hi all,
I am trying to copy/paste a table on a web page, (starting times for the Open Golf)

click here

When I paste it into Word (Office 2007) all I get is the text.Is there away to paste it as a table?

Why not just print it out and leave it near your telly...

Hi Mat Alan,
thank you for the reply,I know I could just print the web page but would like to know if it is possible.Is there away to paste it as a table not only for this but for future projects.

highlight the table, right click -> copy
open Word, right click -> paste

alternately paste it to Excel

that is what I have been doing,all I get is one block of text. I was hoping to copy/paste the text to display as it is set out on the web page without having to separate each line of text to make it look as it should . Please follow the link copy/paste the list you will see what I mean.

It's not a Word file, paste into a 'normal' Windows txt file, that works quite well

In Excel, Edit > Paste Special > Text.

Whoops, forgot about Paste Special, that's done it!!

From the link you provided tonyq, I clicked and dragged from the top of the table to the bottom, right clicked in the highlighted area selected copy and pasted direct in to Word. The pasted image was in table form.

Thank you all for your replies,I was not highlighting the table from the very top only the starting times,it now pastes into word o.k.
Using the "paste into" also works fine in Word and Excel. Its nice to live and learn.
Thanks to one and all again.
