Creating Files

How do I create a file and merge existing excel, word, etc. documents into it?

COPY would probably do it, unless you wanted
the result to make any sense.

Merge? What are you talking about?

Re: Creating Files

What I mean to say is.........

I have a lot of files that have similar content that I would like to put in one folder instead of searching all through the system to find them. I do not have a clue how to gather all these scatterd files and place them in one folder.

Mr Webb,

Welcome to the OpenVMS forum.

Do you intend to manipulate Microsoft office data file on OpenVMS?

If so, then you may want to check out:

Please clarify your question for more help!
What system? What kind of file?
What is the input(s)? output(s)

fwiw,
Hein.

Re: Creating Files

I may be in the wrong forum. I don't know what OpenVMS is. Please redirect me if this is not for you.

I have individual files saved in excel and word. Instead of having them scattered throughout my database, I would like to collect all the files that have similar content and put them in their own folder. This will make finding them a lot easier and less time consuming because I will have everything that has to do with say... "2007 Expense report" in one location/file folder.

Sorry for the confusion. I'm sure this is trivial to you but it is driving me crazy.

Re: Creating Files

L,

You are definitely in the incorrect forum.

Please ask the moderators to refer you to a more appropriate forum. This is the forum dedicated to OpenVMS, an operating system origiinally developed by Digital Equipment Corporation for its VAX systems, subsequently on Alpha 64 bit RISC-based systems. Most recently, OpenVMS has assimilated the Integrity -series of systems produced by HP, based on Intel's IA-64 architecture.
