Brainy idea (sort of) to import VCFs into Palm Desktop
« on: August 15, 2007, 05:08:25 PM »
I just had an idea and tried it on two files and it worked.
If you have say 100 VCF files in a folder, you can't highlight them all and then drag them into Palm Desktop.
This is where my came in:
What if I go to a CMD window and copy the files together into one VCF and the drag into Palm Desktop?
I renamed my two files (e.g. John Smith.vcf and Sarah Green.vcf to a01.vcf and a02.vcf respectively.
I then typed in a command window:
copy a01.vcf+a02.vcf b.vcf
and the result was my combined VCF with both entries.

This is where I need help:
It would be great if I could r-click on a folder and, no matter what the names of the VCF files, an AHK script would then combine all the VCF files in that folder into one VCF file like in the command above.
In some of my folders I may have over 200 contacts and I don't want to spend an hour or so manually typing the names into one command. Not having to rename any files either would be nice.
Could this be done with AHK?
Thanks to any AHK wonder-gurus out there who could do it as I have no idea!

there are free file joiner programs that should do this for you without any problems.
just search for freeware file join tools.
