Hi everyone,

I just found these forums while searching for help with a problem I have here at my job doing data entry. I'm using Filemaker Pro 4.1 on a Mac.

Anyway, here's the problem I'm trying to deal with... if I have a number of word files and I need to convert them into Filemaker Pro entries in a database I figure going through Excel is the best way of doing it. So what I'm trying to do right now is figure out how to convert a large number of word files (unformatted) into an Excel spreadsheet where each row represents a different file. Once it gets into that state I can import it into Filemaker Pro without a problem.

The word files contain information in the following general format:

Catalog #: xxxxxxxx

Description: xxxxxxxx
Price: xxxxxx
Applications: xxxxxx
...and so on. Question is, how do I quickly convert that into a row in an excel spreadsheet? Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Best,
Dan

Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off
