Hello,

I have a large amount of word documents (1000+) that have data stored in textboxes. I need to extract this data to individual cells in excel. Ideally, each word document would be recorded with a hyperlink to its path and a line for each data entry. I have found the following code written by Macropod that does pretty much exactly what I need, but it pulls from tables. See below

Code:
Sub GetTableData()'Note: this code requires a reference to the Word object model.
'See under the VBE's Tools|References.
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim wdApp As New Word.Application, wdDoc As Word.Document, wdTbl As Word.Table
Dim strFolder As String, strFile As String, WkBk As Workbook, WkSht As Worksheet, r As Long
strFolder = GetFolder: If strFolder = "" Then GoTo ErrExit
Set WkBk = ActiveWorkbook
'Disable any auto macros in the documents being processed
wdApp.WordBasic.DisableAutoMacros
strFile = Dir(strFolder & "\*.doc", vbNormal)
While strFile <> ""
  Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open(Filename:=strFolder & "" & strFile, AddToRecentFiles:=False, Visible:=False)
  Set WkSht = WkBk.Sheets.Add
  WkSht.Name = Split(strFile, ".doc")(0)
  With wdDoc
    For Each wdTbl In .Tables
      With wdTbl.Range.Find
        .ClearFormatting
        .Replacement.ClearFormatting
        .Text = "[^13^l]"
        .Replacement.Text = "¶"
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindStop
        .Format = False
        .MatchWildcards = True
        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
      End With
      r = WkSht.Cells(WkSht.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
      If r > 1 Then r = r + 2
      wdTbl.Range.Copy
      WkSht.Paste Destination:=WkSht.Range("A" & r)
    Next
    WkSht.UsedRange.Replace What:="¶", Replacement:=Chr(10), LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
    .Close SaveChanges:=False
  End With
  strFile = Dir()
Wend
ErrExit:
wdApp.Quit
Set wdDoc = Nothing: Set wdApp = Nothing: Set WkSht = Nothing: Set WkBk = Nothing
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
 
Function GetFolder() As String
    Dim oFolder As Object
    GetFolder = ""
    Set oFolder = CreateObject("Shell.Application").BrowseForFolder(0, "Choose a folder", 0)
    If (Not oFolder Is Nothing) Then GetFolder = oFolder.Items.Item.Path
    Set oFolder = Nothing
End Function


Cheers,
Mac
