Hi - I'm using Excel 2003 and am receiving a bunch of addresses in separate Microsoft Word documents formatted as labels that I want to make an excel spreadsheet out of. Is there an easy way to copy the labels and paste them in Excel so that they ultimately result in three columns (A column to be NAME, B column to be STREET ADDRESS, C column to be CITY, STATE, ZIP)?

Right now, all I could think of was to paste a column of the addresses at at time into Column A in Excel... then if my first label pasted into excel as cells A1, A2, A3... my formula in cell B1 would be =A1, formula in cell C1 would be =A2, formula in cell D1 would be =A3... and then copy these three formulas down... but it doesn't feel like the most efficient way to do this?

Anyone have a better way? :biggrin:
