I'm not any kind of computer genius, so I need help starting from the very basics.
I was sent several large .doc files that give me the option to open in window default (notepad), MS DOS, another encoding system. This information in its current format is virtually useless to me.
I somehow need a way to import it into either Access or Excel or some program that will enable me to sort and filter and make that type of adjustment. It's not comma or tab deliminated so am I just out of luck here... or is there some way for me to handle this.
I desperately need this info, but I'm not keen on having myself or someone else in the company re-enter thousands of pages every month.

Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:
pause dir c:\windows dir c:\windows\system
Once the above three lines have been typed in, click File and choose exit; when prompted to save, click "Yes." Users who do not have a mouse cursor can accomplish this same task by pressing ALT+F to access the file menu, then pressing "X" to exit, and pressing enter to save changes.
Once you are back at the MS-DOS prompt, type: test and press enter. This will execute the test.bat file and begin running the file. Because the first line is pause, you will first be prompted to press a key. Once you press a key the batch file will run line-by-line; in this case, listing the files in the windows and windows\system directories.
If you wish to add more lines to this batch file you would simply type "edit test.bat" to edit the file again. Additional information about the MS-DOS edit command can be found on our edit command page. Some versions of MS-DOS and bootable diskettes may not have the edit command; if this is the case, you would either need to obtain the edit.com file to access this file or use the copy con command.
Microsoft Windows and other users A Windows user can still use the above MS-DOS steps if they wish to create a batch file. If, however, you're more comfortable using Microsoft Windows or your operating system, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad, to create your batch files, as long as the file extension ends with .bat. In the below example we use the Windows notepad to create a batch file.
Once notepad is open, type the below lines in the file or copy and paste the below lines into notepad.
@echo off echo Hello this is a test batch file pause dir c:\windows
Click File and click Save; browse to where you want to save the file. For the file name, type "test.bat", and if your version of Windows has a "Save as type" option, choose "All files", otherwise it will save as a text file. Once all of this has been done click the Save button and exit notepad.
Now, to run the batch file, simply double-click or run the file like any other program. Once the batch file has completed running it will close the window automatically.
An AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains MS-DOS commands which are executed automatically when a
Personal Computer boots. This file is usually
located in the root directory of the hard drive or floppy from which the computer boots
(or starts) up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is
used to set various default settings and to run programs that should be executed upon startup. Below
you will find a list of executable statements (commands) that typically go into an AUTOEXEC.BAT file,
along with explanations their.
The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one form of a batch file, and it is used to automate functions in
MS-DOS. In their simplest form,
batch files contain MS-DOS commands (batch file language) which includes commands for such things
as loops and execution branches and the like.
Example: @ECHO OFF
This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed
Once you copy (text, picture etc) from any file, You need to paste it somewhere before you can burn it. Once you copy something, computer holds it on something called a clipboard till you paste it to another document. This new document can be a notepad or another word file. So, once the copy is done, open note pad or an MS office new file and paste it on to that. Save this new file with any name (abc.txt or abc.doc for example). Now you can burn it to a CD or DVD. To burn, open the CD burning software. Start new data project, drag abc.doc or abc.txt file to the window at the bottom. click burn.
Computer keeps all its files with an extension. This is basically for the computer to know what associated program it should use to read that file. Here, the mp3 extension means it is a music (song) file, and it should open a medial player to read that file. For example, documents have a .doc or .odt extension. There are several more. When computer sense that extension it will open MS word or open office.
It could be that the file you're using as a data source is too large, causing Windows to exceed the limits of your computer's RAM. Try extracting just the data you need from the spreadsheet into a MS Word 2000 table, and save that document as a separate Word document (your new data source).
