In Word 2003 or earlier, when the cursor is in the table, click Table
Convert Table to Text. In the dialog, choose what character you want to
use to separate items from cells in the same row (rows are always separated
from each other by paragraph marks).

In Word 2007, when the cursor is in the table, choose the Layout tab under
Table Tools, and click the Convert To Text button in the Data group at the
far right end of the ribbon. That opens the same dialog.
