Hey guys. I have a large amount of data that I need to import from a word document into excel. I have triwed every way of importing and pasting teh text but it never comes in right.

the data in the document is just 2 rows of data. But when I try to put it in excel both numbers go in the same cell so I cant graph the data

the data was roginally in a notepad or wordpad doc. if that makes a difference.

There has to be a way to do this or else my teacher would not have had everything written in the notepad document to begin with.

THanks guys.l
