Hallo ppls

I have a problem in which I must

Retrieve an unsorted text file in which there are only specific details
I actually need. These are not specific words but rather fields like
Invoice#, ISBN # for publications and so forth.
I then need to input these into another application that will later
store them under there individual fields in the database.

Kindly tell me how I should go about trying to solve this problem
Thanks

P.S Here is a sample of the data, the ones that I need are (Invoice#:H 41737, ISBN#: [92-1-051089-5]
Publication ID:00.XIII.1 H,Description: DEMOGRAPHIC YEARBOOK 1998 VOL.50 )
This data is also repeated in the file, so that I get the same structure but different Invoice #'s,
or ISBN #'s etc
