I feel kind of sorry for all your effort you put in there, but,
If you had told me, I'd love to have helped!
See, making a list of towns is pretty easy once you have some sort of site online with all the data you need.
You could have selected, and copied this list: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_gemeenten_in_het_Vlaams_Gewest
and pasted it into an excel document.
Then just copy the first column, and paste it into Microsoft Wordpad,and save it to a txt file.
Doing so you get rid of tables and formatting.
Then just open the file into any word editor and replace all double spaces with a single space, and you'd have a preliminary list ready within 5 minutes!
Or you could further refine it in Notepad++, by using it's extensive search and replace, as one of the best of word editing s&R engines!
Doing this I could have created a towns-list within 5-10 minutes, the process is not intensive, but a lot better than doing it manually!
