Importing q&a from word into excel for mail merge


New Member

Hi! I am studying for the bar exam and have 20 old exams with model answers in a word document that i would like to transfer into excel with each question in a cell in one column and the answer in the adjacent column so that I might mail merge them to print out flashcards. I have tried various methods of importing, pasting, etc, but cannot seem to find a way that doesnt involve extensive manipulation afterwards. I had planned to do it one column at a time since i have all the questions without answers in one document and all the answers in another document. Any thoughts on how this could be done? Thank you in advance!
