How to Convert an Excel File to a Word Document?

There are some features that are available in Word but not in Excel. So, when we need to use it, it is mandatory to convert our Excel document to Word.

Here, we will first copy the data from Excel and then directly paste it in the Word file. Let us look at a simple process for converting an Excel file to a Word document using copy and paste.

Step 1

Let us consider any Excel sheet that you want to convert into a Word document.

Then, using the command "CRTL + C" to copy the content in the selected range of cells, select the range of cells you want to copy. If you want to copy the entire workbook, use the command "CTRL + A" and then perform the copy operation.

Select range > CTRL +C
