in reply to Search a text file for a keyword, and create Excel file output

Maybe in this case it's be better to have a look at scripting MS Word either directly (here's how to add the tools to the ribbon) or from Perl (Win32::OLE). I'm not sure the other solutions will be able to give you the correct line numbers.I did not check what info does Word provide about the things you ask it to find though.
