Is the second document a Word file?  If so, you can safe file1 as file2.  Then open file 2, select the table, and convert the table to text and use a tab separator.  What version of Word are you using?

Pasting Special as Text is MUCH easier than my solution.  Thanks...  I never thought of that.  DUH.
