Default convert text to table

I have a list of documents as shown below. The number and the title of the
document are separated by a tab and there is a paragraph mark at the end of
each line. When I try and convert this to a table, I choose Table| Convert |
Text to Table | Choose 2 columns | Separate at text: tab, but it only
creates a table with one column. What am I doing wrong?

01(tab) Application Claims.pdf(paragraph mark)
02(tab) Application (First and Second Pages).pdf(paragraph mark)
02a(tab) Application (complete).pdf(paragraph mark)
03(tab) Submission of Formal Drawings and Formal Drawings.pdf(paragraph mark)
04(tab) Sequence Statement, Sequence Listing, and copy of
Diskette.pdf(paragraph mark)
05 Transmittal Letter and Postcard.pdf(paragraph mark)

It is certainly working for me, if I first copy the text of your message
into Word (replacing "(tab)" with actual tab characters, of course).

Does Word suggest two columns, or do you have to type it in?

Where does the text end up, as Word creates the table? The whole paragraph
in one column, or...?
