Is there a way to transpose (swap rows and columns) in post-ribbon Microsoft Word (currently using 2013)?

For example, in this table, I want the top headings to go on the left (én, te, etc), and the left headings (van, megy, jön) go to the top (obviously with the data moved also) table to be transposed

I currenly copy and paste into Excel, copy and paste again but choose the special paste option : Transpose, then copy back to word. But is there a proper way to do this natively?

I think using Excel is the only way.

People should never use it, as it is completly wrong :) Higgy nekem, elég gyakran használom ;) – András May 7 '13 at 19:19
Even Microsoft suggest to use Excel for this task. – Adam May 8 '13 at 4:26
