Anyone knows how to parse out a text file line by line and when two pipe signs found to be adjacent to each other then the program would place a string (for example the qord Null) in between. I am using the following code to pen and read the text file to begin with:
 using (StreamReader readFile = new StreamReader(tmpFilename.FullName.ToString()))
string line = null;
    while ((line = readFile.ReadLine()) != null)
             // Code here....process out certain fields in each line }

Need to know the best appraoch to do so without impacting performance. Thanks.

Anything wrong in string.Replace("||", "|Null|"); ?

That works I've also thought about it but wondered if it would impact performance (having to replace any occurance within each line! I will try it, many thanks.

The string replacement will probably be a negligible performance impact compared to the reading of the file from disk.
