GI hope you can translate this into activities

Create a datatable with 3 columns.

string[] readText = File.ReadAllLines(“yourfile.txt”);
foreach(item in readText)
{
If (item<> string.empty)
{
Splititem= Split.string(item,"|")

add data row activity here and in Array row property add “Splititem” and datatable variable in datatable.

}

}

How to put structured data from notepad to excel

Could you please explain me little bit deeper. I am not from coding background.

The first line reads a file “yourfile.txt” line for line and gives an array (a list) of strings (text-bits).

For each will go through these strings one at a time, and put each into a variable called item. This item will now represent the current line of text that we are working on.

Split.String(item, “|”) takes a string (item) and a split-string ("|") and splits the first every time it finds the second.
The result of this is also a string[] with each column of the row you are manipulating.

Each of these can be referenced through Splititem[0], Splititem[1], etc.

The next thing you need to do is the code for actually writing to cells in an open spreadsheet.
