Hi,

Does anyone know of a (freeware) tool or macro to merge hundreds of rtf files into one document?

Splitfile Nov 7, 2007

I use Splitfile to split very big files, and then reassemble them into the original source file.
(http://www.jockersoft.com/english/index.php). You could check if it also work for your files.

Hope it helps

Antonella

Fabio serached a 'merge' program Nov 7, 2007

Maria, as far as I know, Splitfile merges only files splitted by itself.

As this is a request I posted some time ago, I'm very interested if there is any solution (except Transit XV that allows to manage hundred files as a unique file)

Ciao
Bruno

Word macro Nov 7, 2007

Hello,
This was discussed sometime ago:

As I mentioned I have created a Word macro for this (only merging, not splitting). Please contact me if you want me to send it to you.

Best regards,
Cecilia

Trados glue Nov 7, 2007

As you seem to own Trados, in v7 (2006), there is a tool called Trados Glue (Start>Programs>SDL international > SDL ...>Tools>SDL Trados Glue ("C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2006_FL\TT\SDLTradosGlue.exe").
Maybe you can explore this to see if it suits your needs.

MonkeyMerge Nov 7, 2007

Hi,

Thanks everybody for your feedback. Eventually I ended up buying MonkeyMerge, the license is very cheap so considering I am probably going to save 5-6 hours of work the investment made sense. The tool is pretty basic and the interface has a Windows 3.1 look and feel, but it works seamlessly. I managed to merge several presegmented files into one big document.

There is a macro in +Toyz that creates a materfile of all the files in a folder. And lots of other useful stuff.
