Hi
This is a powershell solution

where data.txt and data1.txt are the two files to be joined into the results file r.txt


  $(gc data.txt)  +"`n "+ $(gc data1.txt) | Out-File r.txt

Open in new window

In batch one way would be something like this - will take all .txt files in c:\yourdir:

@echo off
cd /d "c:\yourdir"
(for /f %%a in ('dir /b /a-d *.txt') do (
 type "%%~a"
 echo.
)) > outfile.txt

Open in new window

@JoeKlimis - Thanks Joe, this works well.  How would I specify the path of each input file.

I have included the file paths

$(gc c:\temp\data.txt)  +"`n "+ $(gc d:\temp2\data1.txt) | Out-File e:\temp3\r.txt

Open in new window


you can always use wildcards too (*) as follows

$(gc c:\temp\data*.txt)  +"`n "+ $(gc d:\temp2\A*.txt) | Out-File e:\temp3\r.txt
