Search and merge the copy onto another file while keeping the line row.



  • I have a file:

    • A - Both files have this text in common.
    • B/K - This Text is Different for each file.
    • X - Is between [] and has always the same value

    File 1:

    BBBBBBBBBB

    BBBBBBBBB

    BBBBBBBBB

    BBBBBBBBB

    File 2:

    KKKKKKKKKK

    Line.18<AAAAAAAA>KKKKKKKKKKK
    Line.20<AAAAAAAA>[Y] KKKKKKKKK
    Line.27<AAAAAAAA>[O] KKKKKKKKK

    from all the lines that have it in the File 1 and merge the selection with File 2 while keeping the same Line row so it would end up like this:

    File 2:

    KKKKKKKKKK

    Line.18<AAAAAAAA>[X]KKKKKKKKKK
    KKKKKKKKK

    KKKKKKKKK

    So how can I do it? It’s my first time with Notepad++ The only thing I got to do was searching .*[X]

    If these are random lines than I don’t see how this could be achieved in a simple way using
    notepad++ builtin functions. I would propose to use a scripting plugin like
    python script or lua script or whatever else is out there and able to get access to the
    content of the document.

    Cheers
