Hi all,

Need some quick help to create a macro (not used them before) to do the following:

I have a list of video games sorted by platform:

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 762pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=1016 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 455pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 22198" width=607><COL style="WIDTH: 192pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 9362" width=256><COL style="WIDTH: 46pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2230" width=61><COL style="WIDTH: 69pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 3364" width=92><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 455pt; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" height=17 width=607>Mass Effect 2: Arrival (PC, EA Games)</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 192pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=256>Mass Effect 2: Arrival</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 46pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=61>PC</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 69pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl25 width=92 align=right x:num="40631">3/29/2011</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" height=17>Mass Effect 2: Arrival (PS3, EA Games)</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 192pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=256>Mass Effect 2: Arrival</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 46pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=61>PS3</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 69pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl25 width=92 align=right x:num="40631">3/29/2011</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" height=17>Mass Effect 2: Arrival (X360, EA Games)</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 192pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=256>Mass Effect 2: Arrival</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 46pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl24 width=61>X360</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 69pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl25 width=92 align=right x:num="40631">3/29/2011</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

As you can see in the above there are 3 lines of data here. It is sorted by date. Basically I need to go through hundreds of lines of similar data all sorted by date and if there are games that have the same release date on different platforms combine them into one line as below:

Mass Effect2: Arrival (PC/PS3/X360, EA Games) 3/29/11

The platforms end up being combined into the parentheses as above separated by a "/"

Thanks to all in advance!!
