Copy from WordPad 5.1 to Office Word 2003 - I want the format in Word not Wordpad

If I copy text from WordPad 5.1 to Word 2003 it keeps the Wordpad format. I want the text I copy to change to the font my Word 2003 document is in when I paste it but it retains the WordPad font.
How do I change what I copy to Word to become the font my Word doc is in?

Copy the text from WordPad, then in Word, do a Paste Special and use Unformatted Text. This will bring in just the text. .... Thinkpads_User

I should also have noted that once you have Pasted Special into plain text, you can format it in Word any way you wish. ... Thinkpads_User

When you Copy As unformatted text, the format will be that of the paragraph that you copy to in the Word document!

There is no Copy As function in WordPad 5.1 that I can see (just a straight copy). But if you copy the text and then in Word, put your cursor directly after the desired character, Paste Special, Unformatted Text will pick up the format of that character (which is likely the same as the paragraph). ....

I meant PASTE AS! I'm a bit dazed and confused sometimes!
