I shouldn't matter. This looks for the transition between all caps and sentence case. That should be where to put the tab (or other character).
You could just save it as a text file rather than make a table of it, open the text file in Excel (or Access), and split columns at the tab character.

I was thinking of something like that. Does that take into account that some of the terms are phrases so include spaces?
