If you have MultiMacro from, you could create a single
macro for finding a table and converting it to text and then run the macro
over and over again -- automatically -- until all of the tables in the
document have been converted.

Your "working" file would say (this will make sense if you download
MultiMacro and see what I'm talking about):

Convert IM
(Repeat as many times as needed to get all tables in the doc -- might as
well copy it in 100 times.)

You can download a trial version of MultiMacro easily.
