Is it possible to remove table in MS Word, while retaining the text inside of it? I'm using Word 2010.

For Word 2010:

  • Select the table
  • Go to the Tables Tools / Layout tab on the ribbon
  • Press Convert to Text

Similar functionality exists in previous versions of Word too.

Works for Word 2013 as well. – yellavon May 17 '15 at 22:11

You could simply cut and paste it into another instance of Word, pasting with "keep text only". Then afterwards you can just cut n' paste back into the original document. Worked for me.

Just figured out one better. Instead of converting to txt, which doesnt honor the aligment (I had mine centered), simply go to Table Tools, Design. They have a few drop boxes named Border Styles, Line Style, ect. Go to the box with perpendicular perforated lines titled Boarders and select the No Boarder option!
