I have a table in Microsoft Office which is huge and too complicated to do it again in Latex. Can I convert it to an image and then insert it in TexMaker but it is recognizable? I tried this by taking a print-screen, but the image becomes blurry. Is there another method for getting a complex table from Word to Latex?
Welcome to TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange
TeX - LaTeX is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems, people who love to create well-structured and beautifully typeset documents. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites.
With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question related to TeX.
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
Ask questions, get answers, no distractions
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
Converting tables from Word to Latex
The site http://www.tablesgenerator.com/ will generate code from a table copied and pasted from Word or Excel or a .csv. It isn't perfect, but it does a good, quick job of generating TeX code for a given table.
Your could try to copy the table to Excel and use the Excel2LaTeX Plug-In to convert it to LaTeX. You will still have to put some effort into adjusting the layout. However, this will save you from having to transfer all table entries manually.
Get answers to practical, detailed questions
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
- Formats like LaTeX, ConTeXt and plain TeX
- Engines like pdfTeX, LuaTeX and XeTeX
- Distributions like TeX Live, MiKTeX, and MacTeX
- Related software and tools, BibTeX, MakeIndex, LyX, etc.
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
Don't ask about...
- Anything not directly related to TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems
- Questions that are primarily opinion-based
- Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer
