Create an applescript that will create folders and .txt files for each row of an excel file. These folders will be named based on a specific cell. Then there will be an individual .txt file created within that folder with additional content from the excel file.

This will ultimately be used with the CMS Stacey, a portfolio CMS that works on file structure, rather than a database. Here is an example of what the output will look like:
  [obscured]  /how-it-works/

I can provide very clear instruction for how the source folders are to be set up, and how the text file needs to be created. I need a script so I can do this task again in the future.
