Pasting Columns From Internet

Postby RexinMinn » Thu Nov 21, 2013 9:43 am

I am copy/pasting data columns from the Internet into my own spreadsheet so I can sort the data. But when I paste into a Numbers spreadsheet, all the data (from five columns) is pasted into one column. This forces me to use my Appleworks spreadsheet program which allows me to place the five columns of data into five columns (since installing Snow Leopard I am no longer able to use the "sort" function, however). There is some sort of interface problem going on here and I don't know how to get past it. Of course, I'd much prefer to be able to paste directly into my Numbers spreadsheet, but it simply does not work the way I need it to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....even an explanation of why this is happening would be a good start. Thanks.
