Default Changing formats manually??


Hi I'm not sure the heading is the most describing, but I wasn't sure what to call it.

The problem is that I have a word document containing data I'm going to use in a research project.
The formatting of the pages is really messed up, looking something like this

Code:
xxx    yyy   z1 / z2 / z3   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text, 
             z4 / z5 / z6   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text,
             z7 / z8 / z9   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text.

xx2    yy2   z1 / z2 / z3   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text, 
             z4 / z5 / z6   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text,
             z7 / z8 / z9   this is a text, this is a text, this is a text.
The only format i "space" and "tab".. Is it possible to "force-format" a column at the places where it's obvioulsy meant to be??
