Here's the situation: We are attempting to copy information from a Writer document into a Calc spreadsheet and we need Calc to recognize the tabs that are in the Writer document so that it will put the information in separate cells. This worked perfectly in Word to Excel, but now that I've begun switching some of our users over to OO2.0, they are complaining that this feature doesn't translate.

Any suggestions?

Calc/Writer is a bit weird this way. Try Edit>Paste Special> Unformated text. I think it will work
