I have a problem where we want users to attach a file to a new item and the SharePoint list will automatically read on row or column of data (maybe 20 cells-worth of data) and populate some additional fields within the SharePoint list. We had a partial solution to this created for us a few months back, but the person has since left the company and now I am struggling to work out how to re-create this. I assum it will take some coding, but I feel that I am in a good position to try and re-create such code from scratch if need be so that this can be achieved.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions, Elliot.
