Copy and paste/insert

Post by access1denied »

I have a file that contains data in the in the following order

12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
45454 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I need to use textpipe to copy column 1-5 and paste (insert) it at each line until the end of the dashes ------- then loop the process again so the result will be:

12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
12345 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
45454 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data
45454 Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data

I was informed that TextPipe is not able to handle such a complex process... Still a good product

That's incorrect, not sure who told you that.

TextPipe can easily handle this by grouping all the lines together between dashes, extracting the first 5 characters, and adding a left margin.

Are you a current customer?
