I have a file with 1000 articles that are each separated by a short line of asterisks.
I need the 1000 articles divided into 50 files (20 articles each). The files should be saved with a common name with consecutive numbers at the end. The formatting of the articles needs to be left intact.
Can you create a script that will copy and paste 20 articles at a time into a new document and then copy and paste the following 20 articles into another document...on and on for the 1000 articles.
I'm on a MAC. I prefer that it run on a MAC, but if you have an idea for Windows let me know.
I can either have an outsourcer do the work for $3/hour or I can have a script written to do it automatically. It'll be interesting to see if someone has an idea of how to do this.
Let me know if you have any questions.
