Inserting footer with linecount

Post by Koch » Mon Dec 27, 2004 7:40 pm

I need to insert the number of lines in a footer of a file, how is that done in TextPipe?

Also I need a header, with a special date. Is there any way to get a popup box asking me that date, when I process the file, instead of having to type the date into the filter directly, everytime?

Yes, you need to use a VBScript filter. You can use it to easily count the lines, and then output this at the end of the file.

You can also use it to prompt for data. Please see the help on the scripting filter for more details.
