    Splitting large txt report files

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: SFX

    Some of our report files are too large to be opened and viewed in Excel. What should we do to view the files?

    To view the files, split them in the directory whether txt reports are located,
    then download split files for view.

    go to:

    /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx_version_3/tmp/kbdb-reports/<instancename >
    and the subdirectory for the update months of your choice.

    then execute the command with the following syntax:

    split [Input file name] --lines=[Number of lines] [output file name]

    split OBJECT_PORTFOLIO-changed.txt --lines=50000 OBJECT_PORTFOLIO-changed

    split files will be created with suffixes in alphabetical order - the first part will have suffix aa, the second suffix ab, etc.

    In the example above, files with the names:

    will be created in the same directory.
