Merging Files

bymark Love your product!!

I have two very large .txt files that I created using MM. They were originally 50 different xls files in csv format.

The problem I am having is that the MM wont let me merge all 50 files into one file (which is why I had to create two .txt files) nor will it let me combine the two .txt files.

It seems to max out if the file is 4 GB.

Is there a way to overcome this problem?

Thanks.

Hi,
unfortunately, this is a limitation that we have yet to find a work around for. Our products cannot read from files if they are 2GB or greater.

You could try merging the file from dos. See the following FAQ for this:

Regards,

bymark I did try this and for the benefit of other users it works perfectly.

I now have a .txt file that is over 6 GB in size that I can open with MS Access.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Keep the products coming!
