more detail needed, eg what criteria would you use to determine whether to add or replace

Despite its name, my tool Excel2Html can be used for this exercise, if the .csv file is converted (loaded) into a .xls or .xlsx file.
And a .html template is plain text, of course.

Relevant DC threads (original Coding snack request and support-thread) are available from the link.

Two options then :
1. The first one where do you want to insert

2. The second option replace is more simple : I have to select or indicate the substring to be replaced in the original files.

The original files are always inside a folder.

I'll take a look. But I think better a dedicated tool.

In my case i think is simpler. I need only one parameter.
A good script for this ?

Loop, Read

FileAppend, % A_LoopReadLine, % SubStr("00" A_Index, -2) ".script.iim"

return

Can you give me an example of two or three strings and then the contents of a CSV file and how you'd want to apply those contents toward extraction/replacement of substrings?

If you can give me some real world examples, I might be able to tackle this for you, OP.

simpler than that...

this is (untested) in AHK...


inputbox, srch, Search String                      ; get a search string

inputbox, rep, Replacement string                  ;get a replacement string

fileselectfile, tmp_,,,Select a file, CSV(*.csv)   ; select a csv file

fileread, tmp_2, %tmp_%                            ; read in to a variable

stringreplace, %tmp_2%, tmp_2, %srch%, %rep%, all  ; replace all occurrences of the srch string with the rep string

fileappend, %tmp_2%, %tmp_%.csv                    ; write out to a new file
