Change ths extension to .xls from .txt , u will see that.
No, you need to copy the data excel and re-align the things if needed. Renaming will not work all the times. The standard way is copying only.
If you are talking about a table, you can copy it and paste it into a spreadsheet. The character formatting (font, bold colour, etc) will also be copied.
