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.

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.
