I have a huge test file from which i want to create a second text file. I want to only keep a line which has a specific word in it.

How would i go about doing this?

Thanks

You could use

find /i "theword" bigfile.txt > outputfile.txt
or
findstr /i "theword" bigfile.txt > outputfile.txt

or type bigfile.txt | find /i "theword" > outputfile.txt
