I don't have access to Excel 2007 right now, but the procedure shouldn't be substantially different from 2010. Basically, you'll want to copy your data into a cell like so:

enter image description here

Select Text-to-columns on the Data tab and follow the wizard. You'll want to select "delimited" as the data type. Because your data is separated by spaces, make sure the wizard has spaces set as the delimiter. Then set the data in the cells to type "general" and finish:

enter image description here

If you need to transpose the data (swap rows with columns) you can copy the data and use the paste special option, selecting "transpose.

You don't need to repeat for each line. You can simply do this process on several cells at once, or even on the entire column. Very detailed answer, but you might want to consider redoing the pics so only the relevant parts are showing (hint: Alt+PrntScrn will capture just the active window). –  techturtle Nov 8 '12 at 15:12
    
Thank you muchly. Edited (mostly) as suggested. Still not perfect, but it's more readable now. –  Jonathan Garber Nov 8 '12 at 16:45
