How to paste Word Table Cell along with paragraph markers in Microsoft Excel
I have a Microsoft Word document that contains a table, each cell of which may contain paragraph markers. I need to copy and paste this table into Excel. However, whenever a cell from the Word table contains paragraph markers, rather than pasting the contents of the entire cell into a single cell in Excel, the paragraph markers are treated as delimiters, and the data is pasted into multiple Excel cells. If the cell from the table in Word contains one paragraph marker, then when I paste that cell to Excel, it pastes it into two cells. If it contains two paragraph markers, then it pastes into three cells, and so on. I need to be able to paste this Word table into Excel so that the paragraph markers are treated like "alt-Re turn" - that is, a hard return within a single cell in Excel, so each cell from the table in Word gets pasted into one cell in Excel, regardless of how many paragraph markers are contained in each cell. Any ideas.
