[mso] Re: Collecting Data with Word and Converting to Excel

I could have as many as 50 rows of data for each of the 20 people. Would the
coding be a better choice?

Thanks,
Michele

No programming is necessarily necessary, Michelle!

What you need to do though is include a table at the end of your document
which contains all the relevant info in a single line, like
this:

You get the picture, I'm sure. Get it all on one row, though. You can
populate the table using fields to pick up contents of fields on your main
form, and even hide this single-row table if you want.

When you want to get the data into Excel, simply unhide this row, then
convert the fields into text (CTRL+SHIFT+F9, I think) then select all the
cells, copy, open Excel to your main sheet, put the cursor in column A on
the first empty row, and paste. Job done.

This would become quickly tiresome for a large number of operations, but for
just 20, it's by far the most practical way to do it. Come back if you want
to do it for 100 users and we'll talk about a coded solution!

I was wondering if it's possible to make a form in Word to collect
information from a group of 20 people and then dumping each piece of
information into a large excel spreadsheet? We want to manipulate the data
and that's why we want it in excel format. If that doesn't sound like it
would work, do you have any other ideas? Would this involve some
programming?
