You are almost done with your research project! Woo hoo! Just one problem. When you pasted your tables from SPSS to Word, they look like this:

Off the page - Not what you want

You’re miffed about this, but don’t worry; this sometimes happens with really long tables that are copied from the SPSS output.  This can be fixed in two easy steps:

1. Right-click on the table and choose “AutoFit”.

2. Then choose “AutoFit to Window”.

Ta da! A table that fits on the page! You can also enhance the look of the table by playing with Microsoft Word’s table formatting options. Click on the box that has a little cross in it at the top left-hand corner (as seen above) and the table formatting options will appear at the top of the screen. Ask a consultant for help if you get  lost.
