Excel

Number n in a series of the sort of things people usually post to Twitter:

"Oh, for the love of God, I have got some comma separated text on the clipboard, why do you not recognise it as CSV data but offer me the choice of Text or Unicode Text and then splurge each line of text into one cell???"

[ETA]
2. "Since my grid with two columns fits nicely within the page width of my Word document with the text arranged to fit nicely on one row within each cell, why not do this by default ???"

[ETA2]
3. "OK, it is slightly worse than that, if I arrange the columns in Excel so the text all fits then when I paste it into Word it doesn't quite fit, I have to make the column slightly wider in Excel".
