Microsoft Word Labels convert to Excel Spreadsheet?

By ecraft4 ·
Hi,

I have an unusual situation. I have a huge mailing list (about 2000 names) that appear to have been typed individually in label format in Microsoft Word 2003. Is there a way to export this data into an excel spreadsheet in a logical format? I've tried several ways and the only thing I can do is paste it directly into excel, which doesn't separate any of the fields. Unfortunately I'm having someone manually cut and paste or re-type everything, but looking for an easier, more efficient (and with less mistakes) way to do this. I appreciate any suggestions! Thanks.

Suggestion

You could save the word file down to a base text file. Then open it again in Word and either manually enter commas to make it comma delimited or if you can figure it out do a find and replace to add the commas.

Open the file in Word.
Do a Saveas and save as a txt file. A wizard will open and allow you to determine the format.
open Excel.
Open the txt file and another wizard will start, allowing you to set the format.
