Copy/pasting from Word files to an Excel file

In Progress

Good afternoon,

I need some copy/pasting done, from Word to Excel. The person who does the work should know English well, because the files are not all exactly the same. It's very simple work, but tedious.

If this project works out well, I will have more work for you!

I am a minister who has performed 392 wedding ceremonies from 2002-2008, and I'd like to be more organized. Each of the wedding ceremonies I've performed has it's own Word file. The first page or two lists important information that I'd like to have in an Excel file to use as a database. For instance, I'd like to have the Bride's name, the Groom's name, the wedding date, etc. The rest of each Word file is unimportant, and the file just has the words that I say during the ceremony, the map to the wedding site, etc. You can ignore all that information on each Word file.

The Excel file is attached here (Script database [url removed, login to view]), and the database has 28 fields (Groom's Name, Bride's name, Wedding Date, etc.) Not all of the Word files will have information for all the fields, but if the information is there, please put it in.

I've placed the Word files on a zip file, which you can download off of my website (see below).

For instance, you'd open up the first file, "04-27-02 - Christie and Tim.doc". This is an early script, so it doesn't have much information on it, just 8 items that should be copy/pasted into Excel. On that first page is the wedding date, the time, the Bride's name, the Groom's name, their phone numbers, the wedding site, the wedding address, and the wedding city. You'd put cut/paste that information into the Excel file. Then you'd close that Word file, and go to the next one.

If you want to see the Word files, they can be downloaded at [url removed, login to view] It's a large file (67MB.)

Note: Please ignore the first 2 Word documents, because those don't have enough information on them to be useful to me. Those 2 documents are:

009-21-01 - Jen and Allison

04-06-02 - Dan and Norman

The database should include the following information (see attached Excel file):

Wedding date

Wedding time

Brides First Name

Bride's Last Name

Groom's First Name

Groom's Last Name

Her phone #

Her alternate phone #

His phone #

His alternate phone #

Their address

Their city

Their state

Their zip code

Their email

Email 2

Wedding site

Wedding address (if applicable)

Wedding city (if applicable)

Rehearsal date

Rehearsal time

Rehearsal site

Rehearsal address (if applicable)

Rehearsal city (if applicable)

Number of attendants

Number of guests

Ushers (yes/no)

Music type (DJ or musican - if musician, what kind)

When you bid, please let me know how long it would take you to do this task. One week would be preferred, but two weeks would be fine.

Thanks so much!
