There appear to be many ways to do this.  Copy 
the range from the spreadsheet and use Edit | 
Paste Special... (or right-click | Paste 
Special... or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary 
Paste.  In the Paste Special dialogue, choose from:

o HTML (HyperText Markup Language)

o DDE link
Note that this creates a link to the spreadsheet 
data, so the values in the text document will 
change to reflect changes in the 
spreadsheet.  You can break this link later if you wish.

o Formatted text [RTF]

o Unformatted text
In this case, the data is pasted separated by tab 
characters.  Now select all this data and go to 
Table | Insert > | Table... .  A table is formed including the data.

I trust this helps.
