If you just want a quick and dirty way to format row delimited data into comma delimited for consumption in a query, you can use Word. First you have to turn off the Autocorrect for Smart Quotes, otherwise you will get smart quotes instead of straight quotes in your query. Depending on your version of Word you will find AutoCorrect under Options in the Proofing section or under Tools.
