Default paste formated text from Word to only one Excel cell


Hi everyone,
I have to paste repetitively small text pieces from Word in Excel cells. The source text in Word is not "clean": it contains some tabs and line feeds.
[Please note that it is not possible to simply erase all tabs in the word document (we need them to know what to copy)]

The probleme is that when I past it into Excel, it is split on several cells.

What I would like to do is to copy only "raw text" without the tabs and new line feed so that everything get paste in only ONE cell in Excel.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Heron

Well,
i found at least one possible answer:
instead of selecting the cell in Excel and just pasting into it, first select the cell and then paste into the "formula field" (up there below the shortcuts icons).
Then, everything is in one cell.
