Extract data from one excel file into another excel file using VBSCRIPT..

I am new to vbscript. I am trying to write a script to find few values from one excelsheet and put into another. purpose being, my first file has raw type of data so I will search data on particular criteria and put into new file well formatted.. so far I could get the value seen via msgbox,, but nothing more.. also I want scan through entire file for first file..

Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("C:\Pramod\Scripting\test1.xls")
objExcel.Visible = True
Dim ServerNameAndOS
Dim SeverityLevel
Dim Titless
Dim PortServis
Set objWorksheet = objWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
Set objRange = objWorksheet.UsedRange
For Each objCell In objRange
      objRange.find ("Vulnerabilities (").Activate
            intServerOSNameROW= objExcel.ActiveCell.Row -1
            ServerNameAndOS = objExcel.Cells(intServerOSNameROW,1)
msgbox ServerNameAndOS

It would be useful to see some sample data.  Please upload
a sample file to an accessible web site, and come back
here to post a link to the file.

If you do not have your own web space, you can use

will have to zip your file(s) before uploading if you use that

When I find text "Vulnerability (", I know right above that line I have a OS/Server information, so I can get that information. then I need to find for QID, Severity, Tile keywords and get respective values,, then go to next line... and so on...
then I need to look for another "Vulnerability (" to see if there is any other server listed. if found then again search for QUD, severity fields on next line and so on...
