Copy and Paste Large SPSS Tables and Figures Into Word Documents

Copy and Paste Large SPSS Tables and Figures Into Word Documents 

Sometimes SPSS tables are so wide that when you copy-and-paste them into your Word document they are too wide to fit. To copy and paste one of those extra-wide SPSS tables use this procedure: 

1. Right click on the table in SPSS output that you want to copy 

2. Left click on Copy Special 

3. Select “Image” and de-select everything else 

4. Click on OK 

5. Left click in your Word document where you want the table to appear 

6. Right click, then click Paste 

The DISADVANTAGE: Content copied like this into Word cannot be edited as would normally be the case, so any editing of the table you want to do will have to be done in SPSS.
