I have some experience in this area.

1. If you don't have MS Word, use Open Office or similar free word processor to open the documents and save as text. Be sure to use the save as text options to convert those accursed Word "smart punctuation" characters to standard ones. This is very important.

2. Now examine the text for regularities in the formatting of questions. Lets hope your Word document authors used templates or were otherwise methodical in formatting.

3. Using standard Java library classes you will have to program recognition of the various parts of questions, reading line by line.

4. I have never worked with examview so you are on your own now - is there a good reason to use examview ?
