I have put this question before and this is the code which has been kindly sent by the expert "@aikimark".

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Public Sub Q_28550315()
    Dim strFile As String
    Const cPath As String = "C:\users\aikimark\downloads\"
    Const cDefault As String = "10      Session      2010      2010"
    Dim strLine As String
    Dim colLines As Collection
    Dim vItem As Variant
    Dim intFN As Integer
    strFile = Dir(cPath & "*.txt")
    Do Until Len(strFile) = 0
        Set colLines = Nothing
        Set colLines = New Collection
        intFN = FreeFile
        Open cPath & strFile For Input As #intFN
        Do Until EOF(intFN)
            Input #intFN, strLine
            If Right(strLine, 4) = ".exl" Then
            Else
                colLines.Add strLine
            End If
        Loop
        Close intFN
        Open cPath & strFile For Output As #intFN
        If colLInes.Count = 0 Then
            Print #intFN, cDefault
        Else
            For Each vItem In colLines
                Print #intFN, vItem
            Next
        End If
        Close intFN
        strFile = Dir
    Loop
End Sub
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After this question has been accepted (closed) I have spotted a problem which is:
- if the "txt" file contains "," then the "sub" above will generate a file which creates a new line after each of those ",".
Would it be possible to "ignore" the "," and keep the line as it is?

Thanks.

Another question is always nice, because it might not be in my expertise, and would advertise to other experts more.
