Merge files and generate a resume in two files

Dear Gents,

Please I need your help... I need small script Smilie to do the following.

I have a thousand of files in a folder produced daily.

I need first to merge all files called. txt (0009.txt, 0010.txt, 0011.txt) and and to output a resume of all information on 2 separate files in csv format (I wrote .txt only to be able to upload the files), at the output should be to files RP.csv and SP.csv , as I show in the attached files..

Thanks always for your support. Smilie

So, what have you tried so far?
What language or tools are you most comfortable with?
What shell are you using?
What is your operating system and version?
What logic rules do you have for merging the files are generating the reports?

Most importantly, what have you tried so far?

Hmmm, not sure I understand your attempts. Looking at your files, as a starting point try
awk -F, 'FNR>17 {print >$1"P.csv"}' 0*.txt

You may want to add gsub (/_/, ",", $2) before printing.

Hello RudiC

I am using
 awk -F, 'FNR>17  gsub (/_/, ",", $0); {print >$1"P.csv"}' 0*.txt

It create for many files like
AP.csv, CP.csv, HP.csv, YP.csv, ZP.csv and I need in the output only The RP.csv and SP.csv. How we can eliminate at the begining all the rows which start with letters A,C,Y and Z, to avoid to get these output files.

And also in the row 18 for each file there is a value that I need to recovery and to put at the end of each row.. example.

in the output file only where the first caracter is R, we need to do:


for each line starting with R we need to append these values.. It is a reference becasue all the rows correspond to the same code.


In the output R file need to be included for each row.

Thanks a lot for your helpSmilie

I mean for each file we need to check the value in the row 18 and to append in all rows starting with R these values, For each file will be a diferent value..

You lost me. Which value from line 18 (FNR==18) do you want to save and append to the respective R- lines of that file?
To eliminate the A, Y, Z line try sth like

Dear RudiC
Sorry to confuse you , What I need is only to get at the end of each R line are:
line 18

line 19

I need to take these values from line 18

to append all lines with R

For each file there is differente value in line 18, need to be append in lines with R
