5) Cut and paste the some of the remaining information (retail price, rental price, author, title, etc.) from the MS Word to an Excell file containing all of the site's rental items.
6) Change the case of each title from All caps to standard title case. Add the links using the titles in our "Browse by all Titles" and the specific letter file "Browser Titles starting with the letter [?]"

Additional Files:

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.

Are you asking for a program that will do it every time you receive a new data file from the client? Or for a one-time cut&paste; work?

This bid is for a program, written in C++ and working at Windows platform + usage instructions + all the changes made this time by myself using the program (then you can repeat the process by yourself and see whether the results are the same and the resulting files are working on client's site).
