How to paste into multiple fields

Lets say I have three fields. Lets call then "FirstName", "LastName",  
and "Phone number".

I have information from another program copied to the clipboard in the  
form "Bill <tab> Vlahos <tab> 555-1212" that I want to be able to  
paste into the first field and have the text correctly flow into the  
other fields.

If I type it manually it works as the TAB key moves the selection to  
the next field. However, if I paste into the first field all of the  
text goes into that field.

Is there a way to do this without using a special script which would  
do an import from the clipboard?
