Our Till roll is currently displayed in Notepad. Is there a command switch, to make it open at the end of the text file.

Update: 10 April 2012 00:44 GMT and Local Time.

Notepad2 has a Command Line switch /g -1 to make this happen./g for GoTo, -1= as unsigned is EndOfFile. /g 25 will send it to line 25,if it has 25 lines, otherways to the end.
/g -1 sends it to line 0xffffffff, past the Max File Size, and so, to the end of the file.
I understand that ms Notepad has No such command line switch facilities.
Better install Notepad2 then.

I haven't understood your problem.

What do you want ? opening the notepad ???????

When you open a file in Notepad, the cursor is poitioned at [0, first_line]
I believe Bram would like this to be [0, last_line]

Research indicates there not to be such a switch.
Notepad++ does include a switch that will position the cursor at a particular line number, though not one explicitly for positioning at the end of file.
Perhaps (??) the functionality could be achieved by sending lineNumber= -1.

Question 5'ed to counter the univoter.

Solution 1

Not with "standard" notepad - it doesn't support command line switches.
You could use notepad++ though: "-n" will set the line number

The other option is to start notepad, then use SendKeys to send CTRL-END once it is loaded.
