Resolving “Table has become corrupted” Word 2000 error message after table corruption
A table in MS Word is a feature that allows you to assign columns and rows of text with ease. Tables organize and help you simplify even complex Microsoft Word documents. But, at times, when the table becomes corrupted, the data saved in the table becomes inaccessible. In order to access the contents present in the table, you need to use a recent and valid data backup file to restore your data But, if you have not maintained any backup, or the backup also gets corrupted, then a powerful word repair software will enable you to completely retrieve and restore your data

For instance – While working in MS Word 2000, when you insert an AutoText entry that contains a table into a cell on the right side of a table, you encounter the following error message:

“A table in this document has become corrupted. To recover the contents of the table: Select the table and choose Convert Table To Text from the Table menu”

This error message clearly indicates that a table in the document has become corrupted. When you click OK in this error message, the table gets inserted into the cell.


The above mentioned error message generally occurs if the complex table was created using the earlier version of MS Word.


You can recover the contents of the table by following the below mentioned measures:

  • Close and re-open the document using the Open and repair option of the Open dialog ( file menu). This option may help you to repair the table. You can find the Open and Repair option by selecting the down arrow next to the Open button. You will find the option at the bottom of the menu.
  • If the above measure does not work, then you need to obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Office 2000.
  • But, sometimes the problem persists even after obtaining the service pack. In such situations, recovery of data becomes necessary as the document may contain important information. Thus, for systematic repair of the corrupted table in the document, you need to use an effective repair word file software. Employing highly influential scanning algorithms, these applications provide quick and accurate retrieval of your data. Carefully incorporated by extremely talented experts, these Word Recovery tools are furnished with interactive user interface that makes them easy to use and understand.
