Removing tables in Microsoft Word 2003

Is there a way of removing tables by keeping the format of the text included same? I converted a PDF to doc and part of the text seems to be converted in tables although it should not be. Any help would be much appreciated.

Select content in each cell of the table and paste to a new document.

Use "Convert table" from Table menu Oct 14, 2008

Select the table, go to the Table menu and select "Convert table to text".
Then make the necessary settings and voila - you table is only text now.
