Merge Multiple Text Files


I have got multiple text files which are generated everyday like:

Abb20100101.txt
Abb20100102.txt
Abb20100103.txt and so on
Acc20100101.txt
Acc20100102.txt and so on
Addrp20100101.txt
Addrp20100102.txt and so on

I hope now you can understand the file structure. I have around more than 6000 files. What i want to do is merge all the files relating to abb in abb.txt, relating to acc in acc.txt, relating to addrp in addrp.txt and similarly all the other files that i have in the folder. How can i achieve this objective?

Cannot Save Text Added To .cfg Files

I'm new to windows 7 (as is practically everyone, seeing as how it's a new os. ) And i'm currently running flight simulator x deluxe edition. In the past, on my xp machine, i enjoyed adding scenery items, aircraft repaints, etc. And in order to introduce aircraft repaints, lines of text must be added to a certain . Cfg file located in one of the scenery folders. My problem is, that although i can open and view the content of the . Cfg file, when i add the new text and try to save, i get an "access denied" error message. It simply won't allow me to save!

This single action is the only thing standing in the way of me enjoying the use of the scenery file i've recently downloaded. Any advice on how to get around this annoying issue would be great! I've already browsed through administrator capabilities, and have tried opening the . Cfg file in both notepad and wordpad, but with no success.

Renaming Multiple Files

I have a couple hundred pictures from my web cam that i was trying to upload onto a website but i want to upload them by order of date and the way they are named when they were created doesn't go alphabetically. So instead of uploading picture1, picture2, picture3, etc it uploads as picture1, picture 10, picture 100, etc. The batch rename on windows 7 renames them in the same 1, 2, 3 fashion. I would like to rename them as 001, 002, 003, etc. Is there any way i can do this all at once or even manually without having to right click each file and selecting rename?

Attaching Multiple Files In Email

I have a hotmail account using windows live mail, 64-bit windows 7 os. When i want to attach multiple files to an email, i'm able to do only one at a time. Clicking "attach" brings up window titled "choose which file to upload", i then have to search for the file i want, and select each one to attach one at a time: i don't get the "file" or "photo" options like i do in a 32-bit windows xp environment. Current computer came with ie8 already installed, so i never had to download it.

Getting Win 7 To Work With Mail Merge Documents

How to get windows 7 to work with mail merge documents? I can't get windows 7 to work with my mail merge documents i need to print. It will put random numbers that look like a date in the 1900s in the spaces that are supposed to be just a number. I have had more trouble with this than it is worth, i can't believe they took a perfectly good operating system and made it so frustrating i can't stand to use it and continually go back to my old computer. Usually in tears!

I either need a fix to mail merge my database with my document or i need to know how to switch my new computer to the old operating system. My husband  tells me to look up fixes on the internet, so far, no luck!

Garbled Text Input From Keyboard

When typing on my keyboard my input is sometimes garbled or rearranged. Running 64-bit windows 7 ultimate. Problem appears occasionally. Goes away when computer is restarted. Might go for weeks without a problem.computer is on during the day and off each night. When the problem occurs i can plug in a different keyboard and the problem continues. When the problem occurs, i can input successfully if i use the "on-screen keyboard" application.

The garbled characters appear in the same sequence as the key order on a qwerty keyboard. In other words, for example, i might try to type "green" and the characters may appear as "asdfg" or "xcvbn" or any other 5 characters that are sequential on a qwerty keyboard, including numeric keypad. Shift key works properly.

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Text To Speech Stopped Working

We are using some homeschooling software & the text-to-speech feature quit working. On the software's help page, they said to look under the control panel in windows 7 to see if the tts was working. Unfortunately, due to maybe some update, two of the previously-seen voices are missing (only see microsoft anna now) and when running the "testing" part of tts, it doesn't work either.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I'm not exactly sure when it quit working, as we don't use that feature often, but it's an out-of-box feature for windows 7 ultimate. Anyone know of a ms fix or some other way to make tts work again? My other sound features are working fine, as we use media center for viewing dvds & also use ie & firefox for watching music videos & hulu.

Text Vanishing From Folder Names

Every few days or weeks (depending on use) when i open a media player (i've had this happen with both windows media player and winamp) all the song titles that use asian (chinese and japanese characters specifically, i have no other languages to test it on) text have been replaced with blocks. When i try opening the mp3 files in explorer, all of the folders and subfolders using asian text have also been replaced with blocks. If i try to type the information in again, the characters all turn into blocks immediately.

When i reboot, the information is back exactly as before, so it's not being lost, something is just going wrong with the text display. I have no idea if this is being caused by a program or not - i always notice it first in a media player and then find it in the folder names as well, but since it affects the names of folders in the default windows explorer view it seems to be more than one program failing to render text right.
 
Ps i have no idea why my post is in grey font, it defaulted to that and if there's a way to change it i don't know. Sorry it's a pain to read.

Clear Type Text Option

When setting up clear type text, the application will not save settings. My words are extremely blurry when i have the text size set at 100% and can only view text with the size set at 115% or higher. Changing the resolution only makes it worse. (I have computer set to recommended resolution status. )  Any idea on how i can get clear type to save my preferred settings?  Actually, clear type worked during initial set up but after recent windows updates clear type hasn't worked properly.

Larger Text Won't Stay

Just bought a netbook with windows 7 starter installed. Can barely see font, and changed it under "tools, " "options, " and set minimum font at 12. I unchecked the box that" allows pages to choose their own fonts, " but am still stuck squinting at tiny text. Is this a glitch, or is there something i am supposed to do in addition to the steps i've just outlined? I am a mac user (have 3, but cannot afford mac's laptop), and generally don't run into problems like this.

Lines Of Text Crunched Vertically In Several Programs

Several programs supposedly compatibility with win 7, some new & some old have lower half of lines of text missing & crunched into lines above. Such as family tree maker 2010 & dell pc tuneup. Windows 7 compatibility problem solver was not able to help.

Text Boxes Won't Stay Scrolled Down

When entering text into text boxes like on a forum, often, and seemingly at random, when it starts to scroll, ie when there is more text than the size of the box and it gets the scroll bar to the right, it will keep the scroll bar about in the middle, and every time i enter another character it will jump down to the bottom briefly before jumping back to its original position. So if i am typing fast, it causes a spastic dance.

This happens on more than one forum site, so i'm pretty sure it's a problem with ie8 or win7. I should also note that i wanted to be sure it wasn't any peripherals, so i disconnected everything except the monitor and keyboard. I even took a video of it happening, but i'm not sure where or how to embed that.

Text Size Control Effecting Office 2007 Applications

Under win7 pro 64 bit, control panel -> display, you have the option of adjusting size of text and other items on your screen (from 100% up to 150%). This was also an option under winxp, so i am well familiar with it. However, what's different this time under win7, is that now when you adjust text size via this control, not only does it make changes to your operating system text size, but it also effects office 2007 applications such as excel. This is a big problem.

I have many excel worksheets with charts that were created with specific size requirements for presentations. If i now change the text size of the operating system (because i have poor eyesight) this creates a huge problem for me. I would have to go back and re-configure hundreds of individual charts.

Question: is there any way to tell win7 to not change the size of my office 2007 applications when i adjust the text size under the control panel. Is there a registry key somewhere that is forcing this change, which can be disabled.

I had a similar issue with win7 and office 2007 that i was able to fix recently. Win7 was forcing "clear type" fonts in office 2007, and was not offering any option to disable the clear type font. Eventually i was able to find a registry fix that gave me back control. So i'm looking for something similar to take back control of "text size. "

One Pc With Multiple Users

I have one pc with multiple users (with text-based passwords) oneguest account turned on (with a blank-password).

I want to share some files, some folders, and some libraries between different users but exclude guest users. I have not been able to do it with any of the share schemes that seem to always address computers on a network and not multiple users on a single pc.

What tools do i as the administrator use to share selected files, or selected folders, or selected libraries between selected user accounts on the same pc? Everything i tried in the "share" tools seem to fail for some reason that i cannot fathom. The entire set of files was copied over from a failed xp pc to a new windows 7 pc with specific files copied to non-public folders for specific users.

I know how to use the public libraries that all users can see, to include guest.

So as of today i have been getting multiple bsods i have no clue why, it happens when i am doing basic every day things such as browsing the internet, i have not gone anywhere suspicious of malware or anything like that so i do not think that is the case but it may be. Any suggestions? Log below. Additionally the bsod does not look how it should, it has solid black on the sides, i am assuming that is just a change of resolution because the bsod wont go as big as my screen but i could be wrong.

Multiple Taskbars

This isn't a question, but rather a suggestion for a possible improvement in one of the upcoming sps. It would be fantastic if windows 7 had multiple task bars. I, and many others, use multiple displays. It would be nice to be able to minimize and restore windows in the display they're currently resting in. Not to mention, the window shake thing is nice, but it would also be nice to just clear off the desktop of the active display instead of all the displays.

You know what i mean, windows team?  Make the displays more modular. I'm not complaining, just requesting a minor (to the end user) enhancement to the way the desktop(s) work.

Multiple Monitor Support

I really love windows 7's feature of being able to drag a window to the left or right top half and then the window resizing to that half side. However, with a dual monitor setup, this is impossible to do on the inside halfs of the monitors . I have 2 monitors 1 and 2. On the right half of 1 and left half of 2, i cannot drag and resize to those areas. I can on the left half of 1 and the right half of 2. The above is copied from another post that i could not reply too!  I am curious if there is a planned fix for this?

Problem In Multiple Monitor

I got a really strange problem. I tried few days ago to connect a multimedia projector to my laptop that was working on windows 7 but it showed the display on only the projector and not on my laptop. All attempts to detect external monitor or projector filed. Then i boot the pc again with the projector being plugged out and first tried to detect the projector/external monitor. But it resulted in a very strange thing. Now i cant see on my laptop if i run win 7 normally but under safe mode (and win xp) it shows display.

I can see win 7 display only (not on my laptop) if some external monitor or projector is connected. I tried to select the multiple display option but for me it results in nothing. Help me please and tell what exactly to do i really like this win 7 miss to use it on my laptop.

Multiple Instances Of A Printer

When i converted from vista to 7 a hp5l printer attached to lpt1 showed up as attach to lpt3. I have tried to do an add printer specifying lpt1 but it add an additional instance of the printer attached to lpt3. On a second attempt to ad  the printer it again creates an instance connected to lpt3.

From devices & printers only the 3rd instance appears as  hp5l (copy 2). I can delete the one labeled copy2 but the other two do not show. How can  i delete them and start  over. I know there ar still twom instance since adding an additional one always creates copy 2 and if i run belac advisor it shown two instances of hp5l connected to lpt3.

Support Multiple Monitor

One wonders if the lack of adequate multiple monitor support on vista will be rectified in windows 7? Additionally if the audio issues with recording aspects for professional musicians will mean we will still either have to keep xp on a separate computer or in dual boot mode? Any information from microsoft will be appreciated.

For example - i can play a dvd on xp and stretch it across 3 monitors, i can use cubase 2, 3, 4 and 5 on xp and have individual mixers, edits and vst's in separate windows. On vista the only version that does not crash at some point is cubase 5 studio. With games, on xp i can get them to stretch over 3 monitors. Vista hardly plays any game older than 18 months and won't stretch jack - xp's compatibility mode works much better. Will windows 7 enable this or do i have to use virtual pc xp? The only way i have managed to get wallpapers to stretch is with ultramon.

Yes i have a quad processor with 8 gb ram, 2 tb hdd space, 1gb nvidia graphics card and no issues with anything except the operating environment. And last microsoft - while it's only aesthetics, will the dreamscapes etc - aero - etc if desired by end users to have installed, be available as extra downloads for the non ram conservative users?

Multiple Printer Configurations

My hp laserjet p3005d (usb) had several different configurations in win xp. All were numbered such as "1 hp 3005 tray2 duplex" so that they could be called up with macros (winbatch) and also so that i didn't have to be reconfiguring the printer numerous times a day. In windows 7 i have not been able to install additional printers using the p3005 driver. I've tried downloading different drivers but win 7 eventually eliminates one of the configurations.

Using Multiple Video Drivers

I have a dell studio slim with integrated video into my motherboard. I currently have two monitors hooked up using my hdmi output and my vga output, but i recently bought a third monitor and a low profile video card (geforce 8400 gs) so i can expand my desktop to the new monitor. I tried following the instructions and i got the new monitor to work but then the other two monitors don't work at all! I really hope that i can get all of my monitors to work simultaneously. Can anyone please help me?

Multiple File Selection

I upgraded to win 7 and have had no problems with it until recently. I used to be able to select multiple files using.

Shift click
Control click
Check boxes
Drag window

In the usual manner. Unfortunately this is no longer working. It tries for a second or so and then de-selects the files itself !I have tried sfc /scan in an elevated command prompt with no errors returned. I have tried running a script called single-file-select which fixed this problem in vista (as posted on another forum). I have tried resetting the folder options to default. Unfortunately none of this has worked and i an tearing my hair out.

Multiple Audio Devices

Like many people, i have a television connected to my pc as a secondary monitor (extended desktop). My television is connected through the hdmi port on my video card, which includes high-def audio. I also have a pair of desktop speakers next to my primary monitor, which are connected via the analog line-out jack. I'm having trouble finding a satisfactory way to specify audio output to the correct pair of speakers for the display i'm using. I've set-up the volume control options to display both available devices, and they are both enabled.

Ideally, what i'd like is for any window placed on the extended desktop (tv) to automatically send audio to the television speakers, and for application windows on the primary monitor to send audio to the line out (desktop speakers). If it can't be done automatically, can i specify which audio device each window uses individually? Or, is it possible to have both devices playing simultaneously, with the option of muting one device or the other?

What i'd like to be able to do, for example, is watch a movie on my tv with sound through the television speakers, while my wife plays a game or surfs the web using the desktop monitor with her audio routed through the desktop speakers. If this cannot be done through windows 7, is it likely that audio or video drivers would have this feature? Is there third-party software or hardware that can do this?

System info:

Pc - dell inspiron 580
Os - windows 7 home premium
Video  - nvidia geforce gt 220
Audio -    realtek high definition audio

Multiple Os Install For An Application

I have & need multiple installations (xp/vista/win7, etc). I often have a program/package (e.g office 1993/office 2007) which needs to be installed on multiple oses. I know that i can use virtual pc to install everything in a virtual installation, but is it possible to use another drive (for example an external drive visible to all oses) to install the program just once (one installation instead of one per os, thus saving space). Obviously the registry would be held locally for each os installation, but does the physical installation need to be too? How is this affected by the program data folder in vista/win7?

Multiple User Profiles

I have a new toshiba laptop with win7 home premium. I have set up an admin account and my user account, with the guest account turned off.

There are multiple user profiles under the user file on the hard drive: administrator, public, steve, steve_2 and steve_2. Steve_laptop.

There is nothing in the pictures, documents and video files under steve.

There are music and documents, but no pictures under steve_2.

There are music, pictures and documents under steve_2. Steve_laptop.

There are also two listings under homegroup - both listed as: steve (steve_laptop).

Not sure what i did for this to happen, but i'd appreciate any help to clean up this apparent mess.
