You can do this in Excel. If memory serves (I haven't done this in a while),
you can get Excel to set cell boundaries at points based on the number of
characters. For example the first column could be at 12 characters (8 for
the filename, a space, and 3 for the extension).

Once you have an Excel spreadsheet, you can get it into Word as a table.
