What I want to have is this:

· · The Tinfish Run
Ronald Bassett
------
· · The Mighty Eighth: The Air War in Europe as Told by the Men Who Fought It
Gerald Astor
------
· · Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler's Defeat
Giles Milton
------

And I'd like to get rid of the two dots. I tried copying the long line and doing a find/replace but that didn't work. Any suggestions on how to edit in Word to change the full width line to 5 or 6 dashes in a global one fell swoop? I'm just highlighting and backspacing on the date/zero but hoping to not have to do that and type the dashes every time. Thanks for any input.
The only time I tried grabbing stuff from Contents and Devices, I copied and pasted into a text file open in Notepad++. I then removed any string of spaces longer than 1, converted the CR/LF pairs into tabs and then replaced the tab-0-tab triplet with a CR/LF. I used tabs to avoid issues from the ,'s embedded into many titles, etc.

I then opened Excel, and used Get Data to import a tab delimited text file. I then deleted the READs, dates, etc and ended up with a 2 column spreadsheet with title and author.
