Extracting Contact Info from RESUMES

Hi All - I have a batch of a few thousand resumes from over the years. I want to be able to extract the Contact Info from them. All are on my local drive ... I am not interested in "farming the Internet".
Any suggestions on a way to do this ? We are very technical but poor ... A complicated solution is OK but any solution more than a few hunded dollars will break us!
Thanks for any suggestions !

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unless they are all the same layout (or can be grouped into a limited number of layouts), that could be a difficult job, especially if a high degree of accuracy is needed.

It would be a good start to know that they can all be read into Word.

Could you post a few samples (with identities changed) so that we know what we are dealing with?

Note that some experts will take on paid work, not necessarily expensively, with contact details in the profiles.  If this does warrant that sort of intervention, you could try emailing some of the documents for assessment directly. Since this wouldn't be so public, you could probably skip the name changing.

YEs they are all Word Docs, not in the same format, but all have the usual Name/Adr/Phone/Email at the top
