Default Paragraphs into one?

I sometimes need to copy and paste documents from different programs to MS
Word. A lot of times, formatting gets lost in the translation.
Is there a command in Word to select different contiguous paragraphs then
make them into one big paragraph?
Right now, what I do is go to each and every start of the paragraph (as
translated in Word) and backspace my way into uniting the different
paragraphs which makes this task very tedious. I remember using Wordstar when
I was a kid and it had the option to actually unite several paragraphs.

You can select the paragraphs and then use Find and Replace:

"Find what": ^p
"Replace with": press SpaceBar

Click the Replace All button. When prompted to search the rest of the
document, choose not to.
