At one point I was asked to take the information from an old Word table and retype it into this one. I was able to do a rough copy/paste of the old data into Excel, shimmy it around a little to get it into a more straight-row format, and mail merge it back into the new format. There were a few data points that didn't jibe perfectly, but it got me 80% of the way there.
Hi. Congratulations! Thanks for the update. Good luck with your project.
