How to Copy & Paste Columns in Word


Microsoft Word may not be a full-fledged spreadsheet program like Excel, but you can still create and manipulate tables of data with it. If one or more of your columns in Microsoft Word is in the wrong place, you can easily move the order around by copying the misplaced column or columns and pasting into the correct location. Instead of copying the original column, which leaves it in its original place, you may instead want to cut it so you remove it from its original spot.

  • Open the Microsoft Word document containing the table you want to manipulate.

  • Hover your mouse over the top line of the column you want to copy until a down-pointing arrow appears. Click once to highlight the entire column. Click and drag left or right to highlight multiple columns.

  • Press "Ctrl" and "C" to copy the selected column or columns. Alternately, press "Ctrl" and "X" to cut the column or columns.

  • Click into the column where you want the new column or columns to appear.

  • Press "Ctrl" and "V" to paste the copied column or columns.
