Let's start from the beginning:
My job entails running disaster simulations. The way we do it is that we have some hypothetical disaster happen and see what the reactions are from the groups/companies participating in the exercise.
The problem here is that when the exercise is finished, the output is a word file that contains all the answers from all the companies.
If that sounded too confusing here's an example:
*keep in mind that all the information is contained in multiple tables. One table per person per section*
person a table
person b table
person c table
and so on.
What I need to do is fix it so that there is only one person's answers on one document.
The way it goes now is: Master file and then I go by hand to create the different files for the different people. Which is a very long process especially when there are more than 40 people participating in the problem.
I was thinking that I could write a program either in Java or Python that would separate the different people into different files. I have some slightly advanced knowledge on both from classes I've taken.
