How to Convert a Word Table to a JPEG

Microsoft Word is one of the most popular word processing programs. It allows users to create letters, memos, brochures, envelopes, and many other types of printed documents with ease. Word documents often contain tables, displaying financial information, calendars, or other structured data. Although Word cannot natively save such tables to JPEG format, using the program in conjunction with Windows' free Paint application allows you to achieve the same outcome.
