I put a table into a doc file and decided later I didn't need it there, so I used the Control key and down arrow to highlight it then hit Delete. The table disappeared, BUT now, every time I open the .doc, I get the following warning.
How do I get rid of it without having to print out the entire 5 page document then retyping it?

Try saving the document as a text file (*.txt). This will get rid of all the formatting, leaving just the text. Hopefully, this will get rid of the reminants of the table. Take it back into Word and then redo the formatting.

first i'd try changing the options
tools, options, format marks, show all
to see if you can find the remnants of the table
highlight and delete that area only
'save as' different doc name

saves you reformatting the entire doc

or
- just copy/paste the page(s) above and below where you had the table into a new doc
- retyping should be minimal
