[SOLVED] Merge files from separate folders

Post by mdubin »

Hi:

I wish to merge some wav files which reside in separate folders. I selected the first set of files. But when I added some files from another folder, it placed those files BEFORE NOT AFTER the ones I had first selected. Order is very important. How can I make sure that files added will stay in the order I want?

Thank you.

How did you add the files from other folders - was it via "Add file" or via drag and drop?

Hi:

I always use "Add file". I very rarely use "drag and drop" anywhere and would not know how to use it here.

Thank you.

OK. Could you, please, tell me file names? Ones you added first and then ones, which were added later and appeared before?

Hi,

There are 15 files from one folder which I added first, then 3 from another folder which I wanted to be after the 15 but instead are before. How can I list all 18 files? I did two screen prints. Tell me how I can attach them here?

Thank you.

Edit: I figured out how to do a DIR > to a text file. I did so, copied and pasted the information in the next post.

Thank you.

Thanks so much. It worked. The 2nd set of three files appeared after the first like I wanted.
