    hello!

    I think this is called cross tabulation:

    in a text line this:
    [anything but tab][tab][anything but tab][tab][anything but tab]
    [anything but tab][tab][anything but tab][tab][anything but tab]
    [anything but tab][tab][anything but tab][tab][anything but tab]
    [anything but tab][tab][anything but tab][tab][anything but tab]
    etc

    all the lines that start with the same:
    [anything but tab][tab][anything but tab][tab]
    I want to delete them and leave only the first occurence, and at the end of it, append all the last [anything but tab] of each of the deleted lines, seperated by –

    how can I do this?

    thanks!

    Since you’re keeping the first one and then appending the others separated by “-“, just replace all “t” with “-“.

    I dont think we are talking about the same thing

    I want this text:

    a x1 x2 x3
    b x4 x5
    a x6 x7
    b x8 x9 x10 x11
    b x12

    to become like this:

    a x1 x2 x3 x6 x7
    b x4 x5 x8 x9 x10 x11 x12

    (each of a, b, c, x1, x2, etc are whole text strings)
