Hi All,

Please accept my apologies, if this similar question has been asked
earlier, I tried to search over the stack network and googled but couldn't
find relevant information, partly may be because I may not be able to
search effectively.

I have built a contact form which sends me email for every user
registration My question is more related to parsing some text data into csv
format. and I have received multiple users information in my mail box which
I had copied into a text file. The data looks like below.

    Name: testuser2
    Email: testuser2 at gmail.com
    Cluster Name: o  b
    Contact No.: 12346971239
    Coming: Yes

    Name: testuser3
    Email: testuser3 at gmail.com
    Cluster Name: Mediternea
    Contact No.: 9121319107
    Coming: Yes

    Name: testuser4
    Email: tuser4 at yahoo.com
    Cluster Name: Mediterranea
    Contact No.: 7892174896
    Coming: Yes

    Name: tuser5
    Email: tuserner5 at gmail.com
    Cluster Name: River Retreat A
    Contact No.: 7583450912
    Coming: Yes
    Members Participating: 2

    Name: Test User
    Email: testuser at yahoo.co.in
    Cluster Name: RD
    Contact No.: 09833123445
    Coming: Yes
    Members Participating: 2


As can see the data contains some common fields and some fields which are
not present, I am looking for solution/suggestion on how I can parse this
data so under the heading Name, I will collect the name information under
that column, and similarly for other, the data with title "Members
Participating" I can just pick the nos and add it into excel sheet under
the same heading, incase for the user this information is not present, it
can just go blank.
