This is helpful.

 From the article, which is typical of Lexis+ output, I want to extract 
the following fields and append to a Calc/ Excel spreadsheet. Given the

semi-automatic, that would be a god send and I might be able to do some 
actual research on the articles before I reach my pensionable age. :-)

Section and page number
Subject (only if the threshold of coverage for a specific subject is

move onto the next article in the folder

Many thanks.
