Give Me Access to Word

Pulling data (in label sheet formatting) from Word 2003 to Access 2003. I'm a special snowflake details after the jump...

I have inherited a "database" that is, in fact, just names and addresses in a Word 2003 document formatted to print out on label sheets. Names and addresses have been deleted, put back in, formatted within each label field, and any other mangling you can think of.
I've got all the data lined up in this Word document with uniform formatting, justification, etc, so that it prints out nicely on to label sheets.
But I know that all this info would be better served by being in a database (Access is the only thing I have *access* to). Not being well-versed in Access, I beseech you, MeFi, to help me come up with a way to migrate/export the info that's in each "field" into an Access database that can be more easily maintained.
Everything I've googled/read has been mostly about Access-->Word and not vice-versa.
