22020RE: [Clip] Merging two files
- Aug 25, 2011John,
Your original question was quite clear in what you wanted.
The process is quite simple and short:
Set the delimiter to ^P
Input each file into separate arrays
Append each array element (in sequence), and output to the new file.
BTW, the meat of this was all detailed in the clips I sent you in Feb.
;Execute the next line for all element of the arrays i = 1, 2, ... max
^!AppendtoFile ^%newFile% ^%File1^%i%%^%File2^%i%%^%nl%
Obviously, you have to define the file name variables and check for unequal
# of array elements and other conditions.
