    if the word file is structured (csv, tab delim, fixed length) with one record per line, or is tagged like xml, then you just have to resave the document with the correct extension and transfer text or link to the text file and copy the data to a table.

    Is the word Name always in front of the person's name? Are there labels for each field on the biodatas? If not, a person will probably have to sort through the data since there is no required format like name on first line, date on second, ...

    Parsing is basically the checking of an xml file to make sure the syntax is correct. There are different levels of parsing, but this won't help if the biodatas are randomly formatted without any way of identifying where the name is in the document, where the date is, and so on.
