Below is what I have come up with and it works a treat but I’m sure there must be a better more efficient way to do it. Any ideas? Code: Option Explicit Const ForReading = 1 Const ForWriting = 2 Const Open_as_Unicode = True Dim objFSO, objFile Dim strFolder, strFile, strNewLine, strFile, strLine Set objFSO = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”) strFolder = “C:Files” strFile = “File.txt” strFile = strFolder & strFile Set objTNS = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFile, ForReading) Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream strLine = objFile.ReadLine strLine = rTrim(strLine) strNewLine = strNewLine & strLine & vbCrlf Loop objFile.Close Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFile, ForWriting) objFile.Write strNewLine objFile.Close WScript.Quit Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
