    Default How to merge text files


    I am new to Pentaho and I try to use Kettel to extract data from printed reports.

    I want to merge 2 differents text files generated using 2 different transformations of the same original text file.

    It tried to sequence my 2 transformations , but it seems that each time the 2nd transformation is run it clears the output file previously filled with the 1st transformation .

    Is there any way to append new transformation data at the end of the first transformation generated file ?

    the transformation build is

    Report==> T1==> text file
    Report==> T2==> text file

    I want to get text file containing result of T1 + result of T2

    (I hope I am clear enough in my question )

    Thank you

    Go to second text file output settings > Content > Check Append.

    Thank you very much for your help, in fact I use the french version and the text for the merge option is not so clear as "merge" so I did not catch this was the merge option.
