Hello,

I am wanting a script to select all the cells which are in a column with a header labeled Part #, in unrelated tables in one document.

It's possible to do a script that writes a csv file with the content of those columns. But you'd have to get someone to write the script for you, provide a sample of the file and a sample of the structure of the csv file.

That's not possible.

 

But in scripting, usually you don't need to select anything, you can address certain objects (such as all columns with a particular header) and operate on them.

Ok, I wanted to somehow get all my part#s into an excel spreadsheet without
copying and pasting each individual table.
