Have a .txt file that contains specific data that needs to be extracted and placed into corresponding columns in Excel.

My log file has the following structure:

. . .

=== NAME: xyz123 ===

d1: ABCD, d2: EFGH e1: TRUE (12345)

. . . .

== Specific text ==

Not every log part ends with the == Specific text == line.


I need the following:

If the search finds the == Specific text == line, then list all the following text to an excel:

=== NAME: xyz123 ===, ABCD, EFGH, 12345

All required data to be extracted come before the == Specific text == line, there is also loads of data that comes before and after these blocks that does not need extracting. Usually there are more then 1 lines with == Specific text == in the log file, and I need to list all of them into one spreadsheet.

Many thanks for your help in advance.
