I'm a third year software design student and I'm currently on my work placement. I have never used VB before, but my research has led me to believe that this is the best method...I have been given the task of programatically parsing hundreds of word (2003) documents for information stored in certain tables. The documents comprise of paragraphs and tables. I need to extract the info in preferred tables and export it to excel...Can anyone help please. I know it can be done but I've been researching this for a week now and I really am pulling my hair out at this stage. If anyone can help or point me in the right direction or even link a solid tutorial I would be so, so grateful.
