: You're welcome. :)
: Let's say your original posts are in a file named "original.txt", and your updates are in a file named "original.txt". (Both without the quotes of course).
: To add (append) what's in "update.txt" to the end of what's already in "original.txt", get to a cmd prompt and into the directory (folder) containing both files, then type the command:
: copy original.txt+update.txt
: (and press [Enter]).
Ok it works and i can see that the text from the temporary file has gone into the original but it is enclosed in the square sign and when i try type it in the batch file, it doesnt display the bits enclosed in the square sign but displays the rest how do i fix? Thanks :)
