I am trying to come up with a way to make my life easier at work (who doesn't) We have an online store - where we upload data every day - the file is exported from our database to a tab delimited file. From there - i have to open the file up - and put in a simple line of text with the lables of each colum - with tabs between them. It is so annoying - i am looknig for a way to create a simple executable dos program - that will take the program - when dragged into it (or ran as part of the exportation of the database) - to just insert a paragraph return - and insert one line of text into the top of the file. My experiance with C++ is very very limited - i have done creation of text tiles and even a simple database program within c++ for a unix shell in an advanced programming course at my college -b ut that was over a year ago - i'm not able to come up with anything now to do what i want. anyone got any clues to hwo - or suggest a simple program that will allow me to create a single executable file that will edit whatever text file that it opens -a nd put one simple line of text into it every time???? thanks guys!
