Pasting tabs into Excel

Someone asked me this and I don't have an answer:

Before LC 8, you could put tabbed strings into the clipboard, paste into 
Excel or Google Sheets, and each tabbed item would go into a separate 
cell. After LC 8, the tabbed items go into a single cell as one string.

How can we make Excel recognize the tabs?

For example:

     put 1 &tab& 2 &tab& 3 into temp
     set the clipboardData["text"] to temp
