Is the information lost inside the document?

Over the years we have developed ways of extracting information from within documents.
For example the document may have information in tables with cells all over the place. This arrangment may not suit the next purpose of the information.
When you don't want to waste your time trying to extract bits and pieces of information, talk to us, or email:

Who did what when?

Problem: What work has been done on a particular project.
Solution: Check the files created on the PC. Hopefully they were all placed in identifiable places, like their project directory.

1. Use Command Prompt (\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories) to extract the information to clipboard. Right click the [c:\] button for the menu. Type the drive letter you want, then navigate the directories using the command:
cd (then paste the rest of the directory copied from the Windows Explorer address bar).
Use cd.. to move up a level.
2. Paste into MSWord and replace the sometimes fixed widths with tabs (macro for this)
3. Select all text for table - copy & paste into Excel
4. Sort by Date and time
5. Find files with contiguous dates to identify time spent on the project.


Ideas for using BlogThis!

We have proved that don't need to be writing diary style to use a blog. For years we have been using it for events lists and What's new pages.
BlogThis! lets you come up with something for the blog spontaneously. Select text and press a browser button.
This means that bumping into something of interest can be turned into a blog entry quickly and easily.
