Hello,

Is there a way to copy a section of a column from Excel, e.g.
''
Alice
Bob
Cindy
David
''
,
and paste it into Mathematica, so that Mathematica would create an array of strings, as in
temp = {''Alice'', ''Bob'', ''Cindy'', ''David''}

A straight forward paste results in an expression that's not even a string ( Alice Bob Cindy David )

Thank you.
