Read through text file

Postby timjones » Wed May 26, 2021 7:20 pm

I need to read through a .txt file which has multiple lines that are delimited. These need to be processed one at a time. I have tasks that can do one line in a file, but am unsure how to do this for multiple lines.

look at this simple example.
Save the text of the task to a file and use menu Task->Import to import the task into RoboTask.
Code: Select all
