Concatenate text files

Hi there, long time lurker first time poster.


I have a bunch of files which have been downloaded from an application's API (using Alteryx, natch). They are chunks of the same file - just cutting off at a certain file size. What I need to do is stitch them all together, where one file finishes the next file leads off immediately - so joining the final character of the first with the first character of the second.


In Windows batch terminology, I would literally just do:


copy 1.txt+2.txt out.txt


How do I do that in Alteryx? Many thanks in advance!

Would import all the files as fixed width file and summarize..
