Excle 2013 Paste Data as Comma Delimited

Last Modified: 2014-05-01
I am trying to copy/paste SSMS 2008 results into Excel 2013 but it paste as comma delimited instead of tab delimited.  Is there a setting in Excel 2013 which changes this default setting.  The old Excel 2013 automatically does the tab delimited.  I know I can use double quotes in my SQL syntax to get around but I am more looking for a setting in Excel 2013.  Can I change the registry?
