Check out Applescript

That makes sense. I don't have any experience with Applescript and am a little concerned that it will take me a long time to get up to speed to create the scripts I need, but I suppose I could also pay someone to get my initial processes up and running, and learn as I go. Thanks.

If you aren't in a rush, the next OS release is going to have a whizbang GUI automator feature called Automator [apple.com] that should have a more comfortable learning curve.
Negative? It's only been announced for "first half 2005" which could mean it's 5 months away.

Thanks! That looks quite interesting, and more my speed. I'm not in a big hurry, so I think I'll wait to see how people like their new Mac minis and for the release of Tiger.

Hmm...this sounds like a job for Perl. Especially if the changes you're making to the text files are considerable.
Perl comes installed in Mac OS X, and you can get Cron to run your Perl scripts automatically.
