How to implement a special cut/paste from the clipboard/Excel

Let's say the fields in a record are in a specific order.
Patient ID, Patient First Name... blah,
They are fixed positions, their orders won't change.
Let's say I would like to import the "fixedly" positioned cells into my application.
So that Cell 0,0 goes to First Name
Cell 0,1 goes to Last Name
and so on.
Just like the delimiter feature in Excel,
How would I implement this for my application?
I am sick and tired of inserting data piece by piece.
Thanks
Jack
