Using Notepad++, how would you automatically add a "," (comma) to the end of each row (REPLACE command)?

For example:


('05','512','S','PAR659','100512','Gainsville,  Fl','Rick',,1)
('06','612','S','PAR660','100512','Gainsville,  Fl','Fred',,2)


('05','512','S','PAR659','100512','Gainsville,  Fl','Rick',,1),  
('06','612','S','PAR660','100512','Gainsville,  Fl','Fred',,2),

alternatively, you may use the macro recorder.

set the text cursor at begin of list.
start recording.
use keyboard to move to end of line
use keyboard to insert ','
use keyboard to move to begin of line
use keyboard to move to next line below
stop recording
do playback until all lines are done.

In the Replace dialog, select Extended as noted by Ryan.

In Find: box, find {\r\n} in order to locate CarriageReturn\NewLine sequences. For Replace, specify {,\r\n}. (Without the braces in both cases.)

You might test by simply clicking 'Find' a few times to verify that the end-of-line is always being found.
