One possible thing to help you: Print to a file which you can then manipulate
into the Excel spreadsheet. You need to add a text style printer (even though
you don't really have one) but specify "print to file". When you print,
configure it to legal paper size and landscape so all the data fits. The resulting
text file would need some editing, I believe, like replacing spaces with tabs.

You can copy/paste groups of deeds in the table view, unfortunately, it
pastes them in reverse order.
Alternative: Open the file in WordPad or NotePad, since it is a text file.
You can use WordPad to cut and paste any amount of deeds at once.
