Recommended Posts


Hello, I am a complete noob to autoit and this is going to be my first task.

I have a txt file with data that i imported from csv, i need to start a new line for every comma/tab.

I greatly appreciate your support and I am looking forward to learning here.

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

When you post here it always helps if you have had a go at solving your problems beforehand. Having some code to work on is a great help - and no-one here is too keen to help the "code it for me" brigade.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here. There are even video tutorials on YouTube if you do not like reading.

There are many ways to do what you want - look at StringReplace in the Help file. If you get stuck, here are 2 possible solutions. :)

$sText = "123,456,789" & @TAB & "123,456,789" & @TAB & "123,456,789"

$sNewText_1 = StringRegExpReplace($sText, "(,|\x09)", @CRLF)

$sTempText = StringReplace($sText, ",", @CRLF)
$sNewText_2 = StringReplace($sTempText, @TAB, @CRLF)

ConsoleWrite($sText & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sNewText_1 & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sNewText_2 & @CRLF)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

true words indeed but it's not that I wanted someone to coded for me as much as a starting point, an idea how to go about it.

Now I have it.
