: Is there some clever way of pasting results from R into Excel or Word, as 
: tab limited format so they are easy to turn into a formatted table.

Try this:

   data(iris)   # get a test data frame
   HTML( iris, file("clipboard","w"), append=F )   

Now go to Excel and press ctrl-V to paste it in.
Once its in Excel you can copy and paste from there to Word.
