Text Manipulation: Can someone help me to create batch file?
You are asking about create a batch file but from your screen shot what you really want to do is convert a file with data in one format to a different file with the same data in a different format. The input format is ama-separated values (CSV) file and the output format is a tab delimited values file. Do you want to do this several times or one time? If several times it may be worth writing a simple software program to do the conversion. James McInnes user 5288347 shows several examples. I imagine I coulde up with an even simpler program in the Python scripting language. But there is an initial time investment to write or figure out the converter. You can only amortise this if you do the operation enough times. A more manual way to convert CSV files to tab-delimited file is to open the file with a spreadsheet application and Save as the other format. Here are instructions on how to do this in Microsoft Excel Import or export (.txt or .csv) files s . Note that CSV files sometimes enclose the data values in quote marks () while tab-delimited files generally don't. Removing these quote marks makes the conversion code moreplex but spreadsheet applications already have this ability. If I was asked to do this conversion I would do it via Apache OpenOffice Calc the first time and the second time. If it looked like there would be enough further files to convert that I could amortise the tool creation cost then I'd write a Python program to do it.

How do I plot numbers in an excel table to auto-CAD drawing?
You write the formulas as though writingmands in AutoCAD (like using concatenate in Excel to add standard to numerical values in other cells). Then save a worksheet containing only thesemands file (CSV but don't usemas then open it in Notepad and find all separators with nothing. If you usemas in yourmands AND as a separator you won't be able to clean the file easily). Rename that file to have the extension .src and then use the scriptmand in AutoCAD to run it. Text like L 22 @32< That would start the Linemand and draw a 32u233 line to degrees(drawing a line to the right) starting at the 22 coordinates. Experimentation is key do only a few lines at a time until you're certain it's working. It easy to lose track. I've found it useful to adjust AutoCAD preferences to things like pressing
