Converting rtf files to excel spreadsheet

Project Goal: Convert 112 rtf documents containing newspaper articles to one single Excel file with each row representing one article and each column representing one field from each article (e.g. source, title, date, etc).

There should be one entry (row) per article. There is an estimated 8,308 articles, so the output should have an estimated 8,308 rows.

Each cell should contain the FULL TEXT from the corresponding field. Excel 2010 (the version we are using) has a cell character limit of 32,767. This is about 6,500 words (with single spaces between words). We do not believe that the text in any fields contain more than 6,500 words, but if they do please inform us.

Please keep paragraphs intact (line breaks between paragraphs).

The documents are from the Factiva database and each field starts with a field code. Here is a list of field codes: [url removed, login to view]

I am attaching a word document that contains sample input and output. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi, if all fields in the rtf files are preceded by field codes, it would just take a relatively simple parsing script to generate the Excel file you need. The entire thing shouldn't take me longer than a few hours. If Mais
