Populate empty cells to use for conversion

Hi -
I have a file of transactions, and the first line of the transaction
contains the transaction number, type and date (and a few other
fields). The following lines (there could be 1 to as many as 100 or
even more) have only some of the fields filled in - it's not
consistent - it all depends on the transaction.

I would like to get some sort of unique identifier - like the
Transaction number - on every line related to that transaction, so I
can ulitimately import the data into another system (probably have to
go through Access first.

I cannot think of how to do this! Can someone help? Here's an
example. Below are 3 transactions. I split them up and repeated the
header here, so it would display in a way it would make sense. I do
not need the TOTAL line - and that line is not indicated with the word
"Total". (No help there).

Trans # Type Date Num Name Memo Item Item Desc
