I have 3 word template forms that users send in to make requests (I receive multiples requests of each type daily). Everyday I must open each request and just copy/paste all of the responses into the excel sheet on the corresponding tab (3 tabs in the excel file one for each type of request). I add the date at the end of the row in excel so we know when the request came in.
Is there a easy way to create an excel macro to
open each word file found in the directory
The type of request is in the upper left of each request form
go to that tab in my excel template file and copy in each of the answers from the form into the excel line and add the date in the last field?
Move the word files as they are processed to folder called "processed-already"
I need to run this everyday sometimes multiple times and append each new line of data starting at the last row in the existing tab.
Any help you guys can give on this one is greatly appreciated. I have done some minor macros but never to this level of taking data out of word and copying it into an excel file.
Samples of the 3 different request forms and the single excel file that I copy the data into everyday is attached for your reference.
