Hi group, I am a newbie to Talend and am stuck with this task. I've a raw file with 5 lines and 10 files in a directory. My requirement is to append these 5 lines as first 5 lines in each of the 10 files. Please comment any ideas!
use tfilelist to list all the files and iterate flow to tfileinputdelimited and the on target, tfileoutputdelimited enable Append.
Unfortunately append will only append to the end of the file....not the beginning. This needs to be thought about in a different way. Use the tFileList and iterate over the files as @manodwhb suggested. But in each iteration use a tFileCopy to copy your file with 5 rows to a new name. Then read from your files that are being iterated over and append that data to the end of the new file you've copied.
can you please elaborate your answer. Are you suggesting to connect tFileList to tFlowToIterate (which isn't possible)? or are you suggesting in another way.
