I have several hundred Word 2007 files that are comprised of 5 tables with the same information. (Actually the fields are the same but the information may be filled in for that field on one document and blank for that same field on another.) I am trying to figure out a way to import the data from these fields into an Excel 2007 worksheet. I have tried converting the tables to text and saving as a delimited file which I imported into Excel and I have tried doing a cut and paste. Either I get nothing at all or all the fields end up in one column and multiple rows. I need each Word document to be a single record with one row and multiple columns. I am working with files from Office 2007 and 2010.
