clipping file, to Word document

I love my Kindle 2. I read a variety of books at one time for work, and, I rely on the highlighting and note feature. These features are very important to me.

The problem is, the my clippings.txt file is a mess when I get it out. It takes me a long time to go through it and sort it by book, and then isolate the text from the header.

I saw an excellent solution for this:

I love this - having the file converted into a table of this sort would be ideal. Unfortunately I can't run Windows on my Mac, and, the macro can't be used on Word for Mac as it requires VB which I guess is not a feature in Word for Mac. So I need another solution. I am using Word 2004.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this on a Mac? I would love to hear any and all suggestions. This would be a huge time saver for me and is something I would most appreciate.

Thanks!

Sounds like you'll need to update your copy of Word to get the macro to work.
