How may I use the Bilingual Excel filter in Trados?

Hello, I have a problem. I have a text that I need to translate but I would need the target column can be pasted with multiple segments of text at once. I have the original source text, I am translating the text into word (I prefer this way) and then I want to copy and paste from Word all the translation and pasting it in the target column, the problem is that when I paste the text from word, everything goes to the segment 1 in Trados, and I need all the text copied from Word be pasted into different segments at once...

That is not possible so I was suggested to use the Bilingual Excel filter.

An user in a forum told me that with the Bilingual Excel filter I can...

1) Format your text in Excel (I can add a pre-translation for example in the target column inside Excel)
2) Open it in Studio with the Bilingual Excel filter
3) In the Options of this filter you can tell Studio which column is the source and which one is the target and you will then see both columns in the Editor. (And this is what I am looking for)
4) You then only need to translate the rows that you need. (That is, exactly what I need)
Problems?
Sure.
- I don't know how to open an Excel file in Trados using the Bilingual Excel filter.
I would appreciate someone knowing how to do this, could tell me step by step how to do this.
