Cutting and pasting works, but conversion into other file types usually doesn’t.

Basic typing in the CHAT editor is no different from typing in MS-Word.  All the same basic commands are there.

If you work in Excel, there will be no way to get your data into CLAN.  If you type what looks like a CHAT file in Word, you can cut and paste, but there will be some minor problems you will have to later fix.  Best to just use the CLAN editor directly.
