Hey all:

I've been trying to figure out how I would go about doing the following task.

Basically, I have a folder with about 20,000 notepad files. My goal is to have one big word document, and append the contents of each notepad file to the word document. Each notepad file only has about 1 line of text (10-15 words).

I'm not looking for any code on how to do this, just loooking for a pseudo explanation on an approach i could take to tackle this.
Thanks :)

get to the command line terminal, cd to the directory and type
copy /A *.txt all.txt
you will get one big text file. i'm not sure about microsoft (or any other) word, but it should be possible to convert a text file to a word processing document.
