Have you tried to only select all your pages (CTRL-A), and do a copy paste into excel?

Because with Office 2010, everything seems to be copied...  and between 2007 and 2010 there must not be so much difference.  Give it a try

There's also a program named "File Conversion Wizard for Word and Excel" who claim to do what you are asking for, but i've never tried it.

Here's a link to download it

Hi Lloyd,

When you CUT & PASTE from Word to Excel, it works if your Word data is in a table, otherwise you get one cell of Excel for each line in Word.

@Paul: Wrong.  With Word & Excel 2010, you can copy data from Word and paste it in Excel 2010, and your data is not placed all in a single cell as you say.

I write: "Hello" ... then 2 lines bellow "World".  I copy everything to the clip board, do a paste into excel and on line 1 i got "Hello", and line 3 "World".
