Default Moving files based on an Excel file

I have a folder which contains .txt files with various names, let's say A1.txt, A2.txt...up to, say, A1000.txt. I also have an Excel (or .txt) file containing a subset of these names, say A3.txt, A15.txt, A24.txt....etc.
I want to feed that file to the System so that it can 'go' to my original folder, copy the .txt files whose names are mentioned in that Excel file, and paste them in another folder of my choice. Simple as that. I would be happy to pay for that application, though, so if you're interested, please email me at nikos@winner.gr.

If all you need is help coding it then explain the part you're having problems with. This should be relatively simple to code either with or without using a form. Should take maybe 15-30 minutes to code either way.
