Default Newbie help for creating reports

Hello,

I'll try and explain this the best I can.

I started a new job and every so often I am responsible for downloading
reports
from an online server (.txt files), then copy/pasting them into word so I can
format them (margins, font size, alignment, etc). Twenty types of reports,
about
22 different companies. It's boring, monotonous work.

I've created macros to help with this, the only problem is each report only
identifies the company through its district/county number at the top of the
page
(for example, "district: 099 county: 227&quot. The company name is not
displayed.

I have to look at a separate sheet that has all the company names and number
and
manually add the company's name to the top of the report. I'm wondering, is
there a way for word to do this automatically? Like is there a way I can get
Word to recognize that district x and county y on a form is company name z,
and
automatically add that company's name to the top of the report?

Thanks in advance.
