How to move a field of a record with newlines to another table with different lines

I am trying to automate a situation in which a field has multiple lines, each with a newline at the end. The data will be organized in this fashion:
title
project title
title
project title
etc.
Project titles are known key words whereas the titles are arbitrary. with each line, a separate table is updated with that data organized so that the title moves over to that new table and then classified by the project title until there is no more entries.

It has been a long time since I programmed in js and just got stuck.

Welcome to the Airtable community!

It sounds like you are writing your own custom script and got stuck. Let us know were you got stuck, and maybe we can help.

If you need help with the JavaScript aspects, google is very helpful.
If you need help with the Airtable scripting side, the scripting documentation is great.
If you need help debugging, lots of console.log() helps.
