Need to parse parts of a raw text file and convert it to an Excel file. Seems simple, and have tried multiple approaches, but none have been successful. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I would provide actual files, but do not have permissions to post attachments.

sample data:

!
--More-- voice-port 2/0/0
no snmp trap link-status
cptone AP
timeouts interdigit 4
description Analog phone
station-id name winter Analog
station-id number 58572000
caller-id enable
!
voice-port 2/0/1
no snmp trap link-status
cptone AP
timeouts interdigit 4
description Analog phone
station-id name winter Analog
station-id number 58572001
caller-id enable
!
voice-port 2/0/2
no snmp trap link-status

Reviewing your examples, I see that the following data does not match your headlines, what is done in those cases?

dial-peer voice 9992005 pots
corlist incoming international
description Analog phone
translation-profile incoming tp_add_cor
huntstop
preference 4
destination-pattern 58572005
progress_ind alert strip
authentication username 58572005 password 7 58572005
port 2/0/5

desired results:
voice-portno snmp trapcptonetimeoutsdescriptionstation-id namestation-id numbercaller-idcorlist incoming

sorry, first post. should have put a separator in there to distinguish. there are two elements. the voice port and the dial-peer. you've posted the second portion of the data. the ports match. only trying to capture the corlist incoming portion of the second element.

You could upload a txt file and a file of how it should look in excel.

You could upload a copy of your file to a free site such as www.box.com or www.dropbox.com. Once you do that, mark it for 'Sharing' and you will be given a link to the file that you can post here. If the workbook contains confidential information, you could replace it with generic data.
