Excel/table format in excel


I put my spreadsheet in a table format and now i can't get it out of table.  How do i do this without losing my information?

Julie -

This is simple, but not intuitive. Right-click anywhere in the table, and select Table > Convert to Range. It asks "Do You Want to Convert the Table to A Normal Range?", answer Yes. This removes the table, but retains formatting - which is good, because you won't have to reformat all of your number styles.
If you don't want to retain the table formatting [line colors, etc.] then alter the table to a Light style before the convert; or just deal with removing all the formatting after the convert.

Hope this helps - Andrea
