Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Depending on the data, you could paste the data into a notepad page and save this as a text file and then open the file in Excel which will allow you to define the field widths of the incoming data. This will not be easy if some of the fields are text of widely differing lengths.

Before doing anything anyone says, I'd create a backup copy just in case what they say causes irrevocable damage.

I'm not claiming that this will solve your problem, but what happens if you right click and open with Microsoft Excel?
