Import charts with spaces instead of tabs into excel

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have 1000s of charts that were created (not by me) and emailed to me. I would like to import them into excel, but the chart was typed out in straight text with spaces where any normal person would use tabs. Here's an example:

Date        Name           Document
12/1       John Doe       report1.doc
12/2       Jane Smith     form1.doc

How can I import these cleanly with minimal formatting needed?
