( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks Punkish, I'm actually working on multiple avenues towards that end result of getting all these contacts onto my Boss' Outlook rolodex. There is a .pdf file of this information as well and I'll be working on converting that to a text file and so forth. If I was fluent in Perl, it'd help me abbreviate the 4 or 5 tiered process I'd have to go through, because the script will ideally do this, and take it all into consideration. But the .pdf might pose its own set of problems. I'll see about this when I try to tackle it tomorrow.

I'm really trying all avenues at once and I thought this was a good time as any to take a deeper look at Perl.
