    I'm trying to make a simple macro. I didn't succeed so far. The problem lies on selecting the lines I want/need, then reallocate it to start of it (almost as splitting in half).

    Example:

    Code: Select all

    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    01 = 1000
    02 = 2000
    03 = 3000
    04 = 4000
    05 = 5000
    Result should be:

    Code: Select all

    01 = 1000                          01 = 1000
    02 = 2000                          02 = 2000

    04 = 4000                          04 = 4000
    05 = 5000                          05 = 5000
    01 = 1000                          01 = 1000
    02 = 2000                          02 = 2000

    04 = 4000                          04 = 4000
    05 = 5000                          05 = 5000
    01 = 1000                          01 = 1000
    02 = 2000                          02 = 2000
    03 = 3000                          03 = 3000
    04 = 4000                          04 = 4000
    05 = 5000                          05 = 5000
    01 = 1000                          01 = 1000
    02 = 2000                          02 = 2000
    03 = 3000                          03 = 3000
    04 = 4000                          04 = 4000
    05 = 5000                          05 = 5000
    Of course, the number changes all the time, this is just an example, but normally I only need to keep the first 50 numbers in place, and then split from 51 to 100.

    Any help is welcome.

      For your example the macro was very easy to record.

      Code: Select all

      InsertMode
      ColumnModeOff
      HexOff
      Clipboard 9
      GotoLine 51 1
      SelectToBottom
      Cut
      Top
      Key END
      "                          "
      ColumnModeOn
      Paste
      ColumnModeOff
      Top
      TrimTrailingSpaces
      ClearClipboard
      Clipboard 0
      But please note that UltraEdit macros do not support variables and calculations with variables. So the macro can be used only for files with 100 lines. A dynamic adaptation for files with other number of lines would be possible only with an UltraEdit script, but not with a macro.

        Thanks a lot Mofi.

        I'm aware of the limit, this is what I need at the moment.
