This tutorial explains how to convert a Google spreadsheet to Google Doc.
Save as Doc is a handy add-on for Google Sheets that simply converts any of your Google Spreadsheet to Google Doc. It lets you select cells and convert those cells into a Doc file, which can be opened with your Google Docs Viewer. Main benefit of this add-on is that if borders are added in selected cells, then those borders will not come to doc file. Only meaningful content will be available to use.
You can also set multiple options before generating a Google Doc file from your spreadsheet. You will be able to set the first row of the selection as heading, select column heading style, and add a page break after each individual row.
In the above screenshot, you can see Save as Doc’s pop-up window that helps to convert Google Sheet to Google Doc.
The only disappointing thing is that all the data present in a row of Spreadsheet will appear vertically (as single column) in Doc file. However, you can edit the Doc file with Google Docs viewer, and save it.
