I need to create a batch file that gets rid of the carriage return. The delimiter looks like a square [].

I attached what the file looks like and highlighted what I see the carriage return as and also another file what the expected output is ..

Any ideas how this can be accomplished

Two things to try and see if it helps.  Either:

type filein.txt > fileout.txt

or

more filein.txt > fileout.txt

I started something like this but it definitely is not correct !!!

@echo off
    setlocal enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion

    set "first=1"
    <nul (
      for /f "usebackq delims=" %%a in ("Carfinance2.txt") do (
        if defined first (set /p ".=%%a" & set "first=") else (set /p ".=,%%a")
      )
    ) >"output.txt"

One other approach you can try is the following in a BAT script, although only if the first post I made doesn't.

If nothing suggested works then upload a sample of the file please.

for /f "tokens=*" %%A in ('type filein.txt') do (for /f "tokens=*" %%B in ("%%A") do (echo.%%B>>fileout.txt))

Open in new window
