Need sourcecode for vb-script...


Have a textfile that i need a vb-script file to do this:

Read textfile and find the text "Hittil" , when the text "Hittil" in the textfile is found.
It must insert needed blank lines befor "Hittil"....

Example textfile:

This is line 1
This is line 2
This is line 3
This is line 4
This is line 5
This is line 6
This is line 7 Hittil

Example textfile 2:

This is line 1
This is line 2
This is line 3
This is line 4
This is line 5 Hittil

Wanted result for tekstfile 2:
This is line 1
This is line 2
This is line 3
This is line 4

This is line 5 Hittil

So the script must count number of lines before it find "Hittil", and the insert needed blank lines.

Can please sombody give me the source for this vb-script ?

Something like this?

Dim fso,fil,Line,fData
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fil = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Test.txt",1)
While Not fil.AtEndOfStream
   Line = fil.ReadLine
   if Instr(Line,"Hittil") Then
      fData = fData & vbCrLf & vbCrLf  & vbCrLf & Line
      if fData = "" Then
            fData = Line
            fData = fData & vbcrlf & Line
         End if
   End if
Set fil = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Test.txt",2)
fil.Write fData
Set fil = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
