That's not a native FM command, it's from TableCleaner. Which is nifty
indeed! If you have more than a handful of Word tables to convert, it
will pay for itself almost immediately just on the Word conversions. But
it's handy for all kinds of table-related work, letting you apply global
changes of various kinds to all tables, all tables of specified formats,
specific columns of those tables, etc. Highly recommended.
