Format a text file into a table

Hello, I have a text log file that looks something like this:

Fri Mar 15 23:58:50 CET 2013 (tinasetiawati2) malesss
Fri Mar 15 23:58:50 CET 2013 (AyeSheBall) RT @TRz_simba: He started to ignore you.

He got bored.

He stopped showing he cared.

He left.

You still miss him.

Right?

I am trying to format it to be in a table with the help of Talend in this format: Datetime | Username | Message

 

The problem is that some of the messages are on a new line, please help me.

Re: Format a text file into a table

"The problem is that some of the messages are on a new line, please help me", so I assume the rest is not a problem for you and you just need a solution to manage multiple-lines records.

For your usecase, you have to consider that as soon a record doesn't begin with a Date, it is a new part of the previous record.

This link may help you to solve your case https://community.talend.com/t5/Design-and-Development/Merge-two-subsequent-rows-in-one-file/m-p/530...
