      I do this all of the time. Easily done. I often load the stuff into a
      delimited file (sometimes from a wizard in notetab) and sometimes from
      another program like access, excel or csv'ed. My clip reads the file,
      loads the info into an array or processes it (you can even do multiple
      articles in one file if you like). If you give a couple of samples, I
      probably have a few clips up the alley.
