Copying Word tables into Excel without splitting cells into multiple rows

I need help copying a table from Word to Excel in Office 2007. Where there are hard returns within a cell in the Word table, Excel splits the table cell into multiple rows. I need Excel not to split cells in the Word table into multiple Excel rows. At the same time, I need to retain the paragraphs that appear within the Word table cells - that is, I can't just get rid of all those hard returns; the formatting must be preserved. My Google-fu is failing me rather seriously. Is there any way to do this?
