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.
