Combine Text (.txt) files in UiPath


I have a folder containing 10,000 txt files and want to combine them into a pdf or text file.

Can this be done? Currently I assigned the file and then am running for each and read file.



Please check below thread and follow the steps.

Can anyone help me for text file consolidation?

Yah it can be
Use a assign activity like this
arr_files = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,”*.txt”)

Where arr_files is a variable of type array of string
—now use a for each activity and pass the above variable as input and change the type argument as string in the property panel
—inside the loop use a READ TEXT FILE ACTIVITY And pass the input as item.ToString
And get the output with a variable of type string named str_input
—now use a assign activity like this
str_output = str_output + Environment.Newline + str_input
Where str_output is a variable of type string with default value as string.Empty defined in the variable panel

—followed by this For each loop use a WRITE TEXT FILE activity and mention the input as str_output and the file path of the text file

That’s all you are done
