    Looking for a simple way to do this. I have not programmed in quite a while and don't have the time to learn again with the new toolsets.

    Ground rules:
    1) Automatic - I hand it a list of files and it does a text search on several strings with logicals and saves the applicable files to a new directory.

    IF string1 and not string2 etc... save to "directory"

    2) Already available within Windows environment, though an ideal GNU utility would be acceptable.

    I know I can do this with basic scripting but it sounds like work (vbasic and I never got along).

    Any other ideas?

    I get about 50-100 of these files in a zip every week and no longer have time to parse them manually.
