Count record on Text files

Count record on Text files

Count record on Text files

is a very simple way to do either in DOS or put this command into a .bat

find /v /c "" *.* > allcount.txt

/V Ddisplay all lines
/C Display all the count
“” No string
> More than send to a file
Allcount.txt that is the file name where all the count files will be storage

if you do it in DOS you have to run this from the command line in the directory that you drop all your files

this find command is up to you where you decide to run it from...good luck

this will create a file ( allcount.txt ) that you could open in notepad or excel and strip the data in order to get the total from all the files into a big summary.
