Need help with Microsoft Works Topic

I used to copy (from WIS)  and paste (into MS Excel) career info for players in a progressive league.  I recently got a new computer with MS Works Spreadsheet.  Now when I paste into that, it doesn't move data into separate columns. Instead it  lays all the information into one column.   Paste special option is grayed out in MS Works.  Does anybody have any suggestions?  As Bat Masterson would say "I'd be much obliged (tips cowboy hat)

You could try OpenOffice or Google Docs as an alternative... they are both free and have features very similar to Excel.

Thanks newper...I went to try them both; sadly both OpenOffice and Google Docs spreadsheet do similar things.

sometimes it depends what sections I copy/paste -  this same thing happens to me sometimes but usually if I go back and re-copy the section and try a new page it works out

I was just able to do it in Google Docs.  I use Firefox (but give it a try in IE or Chrome or Opera) -- the trick is to hold the CTRL key down while you highlight the cells to copy.  Then just click on one cell in the Google Doc spreadsheet and Ctrl+V.

Resolved!  Thanks newper.  Actually using Firefox for WIS instead of IE copying is what made the difference.  !!!!!!  Problem resolved
