    Easy way to clean up text for use in tables?


      Working on some catalog/tech manuals with lots of data in tables. It's a 20 page manual with probably 50 tables. I've been supplied text in a word doc, but the typist put a lot of extra 'spaces' and 'tabs' in between that data to make the columns justify on the screen. Of course when I try to convert that to a table, all the extra tabs and spaces make a bunch of extra columns...I've done one manual so far...took about 13 hours total to 'clean up' the text but I have 4 more manuals to go. Does anyone know of an easier way to 'clean up the text'? or any other suggestions?
