For ease of you, you really need a program.
Option 1: Advanced editors like Notepad++. Use advanced find & replace:
find: \n\r
replace: ,

Option 2: Copy paste to Word. Record a macro, from the first line, press END, DEL, the "," key, CURSOR LEFT (it should jump to the next line, if not, use CURSOR DOWN, HOME)
Stop macro record, run macro record until the end.

Option 3: VB script (maybe I will provide code later if you really need it)

You don't need a macro in Word.

Just press CTRL+H (or click on "Replace"), then type ^p in the find box and , in the replace box.
Or, if your file has Unix style endings, type ^l in the find box and , in the replace box.

HTH,
Dan

Copy this to excel, in the second column add comma and drag to the end row.
Now copy back to notepad.

You have Unix style line endings.

In find you need: \n
replace with ,

Sorry, my bad:
it's: \r\n
(But you have to set search mode to Extended, it's in the same window left bottom)
