MS DOS Data File to Be Imported

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.

Please help.

If you have access and excel you probably have WORD.
When you go to open the .doc file select other or if the list shows word open with that if not "Browse" for word.exe to open the .doc file.

Or open word, select the icon in word for "open", or go to file, open, and select the .doc file to open.

    • Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  3. To change the directory to the location of the Vbe6.dll file, type one of the following (including the quotation marks), and then press ENTER: CD "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Vba\Vba6"-or- CD progra~1\Common~1\Micros~1\Vba\Vba6NOTE: This is the default directory for the Vbe6.dll file. If you installed Microsoft Office into another drive or directory, you must type its path.
  4. To unregister the Vbe6.dll file, type the following.

    In Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me, type: C:\Windows\System\REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLLIn Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows XP, type: REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLL-or- C:\Winnt\System32\REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLLNOTE: This is the default directory for the Windows System directory.

  5. In the MS-DOS prompt window, rename Vbe.dll to Vbe.old by typing the following and then pressing ENTER: rename vbe6.dll vbe6.old
  6. Quit the MS-DOS prompt window. To do this, do one of the following:

Creating Mailing Labels in MS Word 2000


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).
