I need a script that will read a text file, and for every line in the text file create a few lines of data in a second text file.

input text file looks like this
navs.org.ukhome
negotiationisdone.com
negotiationisdone.wordpress.com
negotiationisover.blogspot.com
negotiationisover.com

I need the out put file to look like this

               edit "navs.org.ukhome"
                    set action block
                    set type wildcard
                next
                edit "negotiationisdone.com"
                    set action block
                    set type wildcard
                next
            edit "negotiationisdone.wordpress.com"
                    set action block
                    set type wildcard
                next
            edit "negotiationisover.blogspot.com"
                    set action block
                    set type wildcard
                next
            edit "negotiationisover.com"
                    set action block
                    set type wildcard
                next

This works, I just tried it:

The variable strFileName will be your final OUTPUT file
The file I called c:\servers.txt would contain the list of your .com web sites.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Const FOR_APPENDING = 8
strFileName = "C:\testfile.txt"
Const ForReading = 1

Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = objFS.CreateTextFile(strFileName, True)
MyFile.Close
Set objTS = objFS.OpenTextFile(strFileName,FOR_APPENDING)
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile _
    ("c:\servers.txt", ForReading)

Do Until objTextFile.AtEndOfStream
    strNextLine = objTextFile.Readline
    arrServiceList = Split(strNextLine , ",")

objTS.Write "edit " & Chr(34) & arrServiceList(0) & Chr(34) & vbCrLf
objTS.Write "set action block" & vbCrLf
objTS.Write "set type wildcard" & vbCrLf
objTS.Write "next" & vbCrLf

Loop
ObjTS.Close

I made a few changes for spacing and notice that you put the create file first, no big deal,  easy fix, thanks
