Default How to extract email addresses from a word document

I have been looking at away to extract email addresses from a word documents. I came across a thread in this forum answered by Graham Mayor
where comprehensive instructions are given to do this.

1. Use Ctrl+C to copy the search term below:

[a-zA-Z0-9\-_.]{1,}\@[a-zA-Z0-9\-_.]{1,}

2. Use Ctrl+V to paste it into the "Find what" box in the Find dialog.

3. Click More to display the rest of the dialog; check the boxes for "Use
wildcards" and "Highlight all items found."

4. Find All.

5. Click on the title bar of the document to return the focus to the
document.

6. Press Ctrl+C to copy all the highlighted email addresses.

7. Open a new document and Paste.

I use word 2010 and the instructions work perfectly, the email addresses are highlighted.

From that point I am unable to select the email addresses copying them and pasting them into a separate document. Can some one assist me from that point.

I think from point 5. above is where I have a challenge.

Many thanks

Rodney

Thumbs up Answer: How to extract email addresses from a word document

Hi Rodney!

I'm glad to hear that the instructions provided by Graham Mayor worked for you up to step 5. Here's what you can do from the
  1. After step 5, you should see all the email addresses highlighted in your document.
  2. Press and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and then click on each highlighted email address one by one. This will select all the email addresses.
  3. Once all the email addresses are selected, press Ctrl+C to copy them.
  4. Open a new Word document or any other text editor of your choice.
  5. Press Ctrl+V to paste the copied email addresses into the new document.
  6. Save the new document with a name of your choice.

That's it! You should now have a separate document with all the email addresses extracted from your original Word document.

Default How to extract email addresses from a word document

Hi Rodney,

I have been looking at away to extract
email addresses from a word documents.


Are those addresses formatted as hyperlinks? Or is it just text?

[a-zA-Z0-9\-_.]{1,}\@[a-zA-Z0-9\-_.]{1,}
"Use wildcards" and "Highlight all items found."


I use word 2010 and the instructions
work perfectly, the email addresses are
highlighted.


From that point I am unable to select the
email addresses copying them and pasting
them into a separate document.


You must *not* choose "Reading Highlight". Instead press the button "Find
In" to choose "Main Document".

Cheers,
Lisa

What if the email address is at the end of a sentence and there is a period at the end of the email address? Is there a way to get rid of all these periods?

Default How to extract email addresses from a word document

Hello

I just tested this suggestion and have to say that the results for email addresses was poor. The problem is that some email addresses may have hyphens, dots between names etc and the software missed loads of email addresses.
What I normally use is Text Crawler but you have to know regular expressions to capture what you want

This is the definitive tip that works with all types of email addresses... i.e. Those with .'s or -'s... in the addresses. Thanks clever stranger!

Hi Rodney,

I could't be able to copy the mail Id's which are having full stop in the middle of the Email Address. Could you suggest me the best way to solve this.

Thanks

Thank you! This works better than the top Google results that come up - meaning it actually works right - handles periods and hyphens. Kudos!
