Default copying to multiple rows

Quite often I need to copy several rows of text to several rows of a table.
I copy the rows that I want to paste into the tables, highlight the rows I
want to copy to and click 'paste' or 'paste special/unformatted text' or
'paste special/formatted text'. Only the first word of each sentence is
copied.
How can I get all the characters/sentences of each row copied into as many
rows in a table?

Thanks for reading,

um...not very much. But, I'm having a problem doing it. Am I missing an
answer?

Default copying to multiple rows

All I can say is that if I select and copy several lines of text and then I
select a number of rows of a table, the following happens:

1. If there are no commas in the selected text, the selected text is
pasted in its entirety into every cell of the selected rows.

2. If there are commas in the selected text, the text following the comma
is inserted into the next cell of each row of the table. (Providing that
there are more columns than commas, each of the selected rows will contain
the full text, albeit spread over the cells in the row.

If I select several paragraphs of text and copy them and then select a
number of rows. each paragraph is pasted into a separate cell in each of the
selected rows, so that I end up with each row being identical, but with the
first paragraph in the cells in the first column, the second paragraph in
the cells in the second column and so on.

I know this has been a while - hope you still receive it.

I'm pasting 4 sentences into 4 rows - no commas - I get only the first word
of each sentence. What you have written (copied) below is exactly what I
KNOW it SHOULD do and it used to do it that way, but NOW it will only do the
first word of each sentence. I have tried dragging, pasting with/without
formatting, every different way I can think of...but I get only the first
word.

Should I reinstall Word 2007?

Thanks again,
wiersma7

Can you post the four sentences, displayed exactly as they appear in the
material you are copying?
