Delete an Excel Table without Losing Data or Formatting

Let's say you've created a table in Microsoft Excel. You don't want the Excel table, but you do want to keep the data or formatting. The solution is simple: convert the table back to a data range. Note: For this to work, you need to have an already completed table. Click anywhere on the table. This displays the Design tab under Table Tools on the Ribbon.
