Default copying a table from a webpage into word


what is the best way to copy a table from a webpage into word
at present what i do is create a table in word and then copy paste each cell individually

do you guys know of a better way, something like a copy special and paste special, which would enable me to copy paste say 10x10 cells at one go

Not sure (I think you need to do something to your browser)

You can try using ALT + Print Screen and copy an image of the webpage.

thanks dude

i discovered that if i just copy the table, the contents are placed without the table and if copied the character just before the table, then the table (cell content + structure) is copied
