I am importing an MS Word style. It comes in as a table. I convert table and it becomes an ungodly mess (it's a school directory). I open in MS Word and the only option is to convert it to a table even though it already is a table. I showed the invisibles I noticed that the file that imports as a table doesn't have tab characters (top image). How do I turn those pointy squares to tabs and/or paragraphs.
My guess is that this is text that is formatted to look like a table and not an actual Word table. You probably need to do extensive work within Word to tidy the text before you can import it into ID.
I imported the text and it comes in as a table. Ineed to search within a specific column to replace all hard returns with a tab. Is that possible?
If you can select the column you shold be able to set the range to selection.
