in 2010 I've asked for a macro help to convert an edi (.out file) that I receive daily from a client and I needed to convert to csv to be able to import into my database.

the macro that I used is/was working perfectly until this week when my client changed the file format.

My client added some lines to the file.

Please see attached macro I use., and sample csv file

I need your help changing the macro to recognize the changes.

changes are:
if you notice on line 10, line 25, Column "A" is empty.

I need to have 2 files created .
1- I need the macro to recognize and skip the lines that has colmn "A" empty. and save the file (FILE01) as .csv
2- I need the macro to recognize the lines with column "A" empty and ignore everything else, and save the file (FILE02) as .csv

is there any way the new file created can be saved automatically on the desktop?

Any help is appreciated.
