Insert Line


This version of Orchestrator has reached the end of support. We recommend you to upgrade to Orchestrator 2019.

The Insert Line activity inserts lines into a text file on a line number that you specify.

This activity replaces functionality in the Manage Text File legacy activity from Opalis 6.3.

Configuring the Insert Line Activity

Before you configure the Insert Line File activity, you need to determine the following:

  • The name of the file you want to insert text into.

  • The file encoding type of the file you want to insert text into.

  • The line number location where you want to insert the text.

Use the following information to configure the Insert Line activity.
