Converting an extrude along a path mesh to poly - How?

I know there is a thread about converting a curve object to poly but I think my issue is different because I cannot see the “Convert to” option in the “Curve” menu.

So this is my situation. I extruded a bezier curve along another bezier curve. Not I would lik to conver that extruded mesh to a poly mesh. If I click the “Poly” button in the “Curve Tools” pannel under “Convert”, the resulting poly object os extremely blocky and just vaguely looks like the extruded mesh. So how do I do that?

OK. Sorry. Just found the option in the “Curve” menu once I got out of “Edit” mode and into “Object” mode.

you can convert curve to mesh by Alt-C
