Text Excerption



A content manager has a folder of 150 text files exported from a content database, one file for each record. He needs to excerpt four particular paragraphs from each file and organize these excerpts into a spreadsheet for further processing. Since these paragraphs are spread all over the file, if he is to do this manually, he will have to copy-paste a total of 600 times, accompanied by scrolling up and down each time. This is estimated to take about two hours, and is expected to be error-prone.



Use a WorkWaltz custom automation tool to excerpt the four object paragraphs from all 150 files, and organize them into a new spreadsheet in less than two minutes.
