Hi esword friends

 

This above question may have already been asked?? Although maybe just in a different way than maybe I have asked. Cant find anything under topics search as a result... 

 

Any way, the situation I have is that I have esword on two computers which both have precious  journal and topics note content on one computer and different precious similar content on the other. Using one computer is best practice I'm certain of this now although this situation has developed over a long period of time and in the shadow of great ignorance...:-)

 

I want to combine all the information on the two computers without losing anything. Apart from copying and pasting or some other laborious means like this may be someone has found an easier and quicker way to combine all content

 

Any thoughts or ways others have successfully achieved this?

 

Would really appreciated any help!

 

Thanks all

 

Derek

There are several ways to merge text files, a quick google of Merge Text Files Windows yields a plethora of methods and programs for merging files.

After that is accomplished, storing your journal and topic notes in the cloud provides a way to allow both machines to access the same file thus keeping the merged file current.  (But obviously only if you have access to the internet when you want to access the notes.)

 

I'm not saying this is the best way, but it is a workaround that generally works.

 

I ran across a discussion in an unrelated discussion that might help in converting the journal and topx files for merging.

Hi Tim

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I tried to use MS One Drive and somehow maybe I missed your point on merging files.

 

It seems that all of my Journal notes and Topic notes are now gone and cant be accessed. They appear on One Drive although my concern is if I download these now that they will overwrite files that may potentially still exist on my hard drive and therefore lose the original content for good.

 

I am at a loss as to how to proceed safely and not lose anything potentially for good, if not already, although now cant access any of the information??

 

I will keep looking on what I can do if you dont have any other advice to salvage.

 

Thanks 

 

Derek

File merging programs simply allow you to take the data/text (journal as an example) entries from both machines and combine them into a single file (same for the topx) without overwriting them or losing any of the data. 

 

One of the original uses for file merge programs was combining two mailing (or customer billing) lists so they tend to be very reliable and accurate since companies tend to get irate if you loose names from their contact or billing lists.  

 

They can merge just about any sort of documents (especially if the documents to be merged are in the same format, to begin with (two journal files as an example).

 

I am sorry if I misunderstood, but I am almost certain that you said you wanted to combine the journal entries from both machines into one.


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
