    Word macro to convert text to table

    I want the whole document to be selected (or apply the macro on selection if there is already selected text) and have it converted to table (with paragraph as separator) and then have that column duplicated with its content on the right and both columns being equally sized and fitting in the page. I tried something like this with limited success, as I kept getting the second column extending beyond the page.

    The end result should be like the attached image.

    A variation, should simply insert an empty column on the right without copying the text.
