How can I copy a list of files in a folder on Windows XP, without using the print screen key/command

I have a window open in Explorer on XP. This window has a list of files and folders in it. I want to copy that of files and folders into Word.
Print Screen WILL NOT work, as that just produces graphic files and the list of files is longer than the screen.
I tried selecting all and right clicking and choosing print, but that just wants to print the actual files, not the list. Doing a copy and attempting past into Word produces nothing except this error:
"Windows cannot obtain the data for the '(folder name)' link"
Searching help or Google produces nothing except the Print Screen button, which again, Print Screen WILL NOT work, as that just produces graphic files and the list of files is longer than the screen.
