Importing an excel worksheet into a file geodatabase

I am trying to import an excel worksheet into a file geodatabase using the Table to Geodatabase (multiple) tool within ArcCatalog but everytime I run it Arc gives me an error saying that "Failed to execute (Copy Rows)". I have imported many excel files into the same file geodatabase recently but at that time no errors were encountered, so that is why I don't understand why I get error this time. I think it is because this time the excel worksheet has some cells that have information in multiple pararaphs so the data in the same cell is separated by spaces.

Please let me know what the issue is this time and how I could fix it or work around it to get the excel worksheet into the file geodatabase.
