I don't mind giving you a hand here.  Firstly, I'll need to know a bit more 
about your text files.  How are they arranged?  (Attach a few verses to an 
e-mail for me).  Second do you have any programming/scripting skills?  The 
standard module making tools are only going to be of use if you have a 
'standard' kind of input file.  I've never found one yet, so I've usually 
ended up writing a C command line program to call the add and link 
functions through the Sword library.

There has been quite a lot of discussion on the list about making modules - 
but from my experience there aren't very many easy standard answers.  It 
depends too much on what you have for your source!

God bless,
