Quickly transpose data in rows and columns of a table in Word

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2018-12-17

If you need to transpose data from rows to columns or vice versa, you need to copy the table to Excel worksheet and use the paste special function to transpose the table, then paste the transposed table back to Word. Here, I introduce a handy add-in tool – Kutools for Word, its Transpose Table utility can handle this job with two clicks.

Applying Transpose Table by clicking Kutools Plus > Transpose Table.
