Default Import data from Excel into 3-column table

Word 2003, Win XP

I have a source document with 1580 rows, one column each row. The label for
this row is "Name".

I have a destination document with a Word table. It has three columns per
row.

Is there a way to take data from the source document and populate the
destination document so that it fills the table across and then goes to the
next row?

I was thinking some sort of field/merge would work but I can't find the
right combination. Any help?

Here's an example:

Source data:
Joe
Bob
Mary
Sue
Luann

Destination data:
Joe Bob Mary
Sue Luann


Thanks,

Allison

Never mind, I found what I needed in the merge to labels area. Should have
looked harder before posting. Thanks!
