I have some csv files which have varying contents. I want to simply disregard the schema and write the lines of text into one file. Which transformers or technique could I use to achieve this?

  • You can merge csv here: [merge csv files](merge-csv.com ) Jan 9, 2017 at 14:13
  • Please read the question again carefully. Your answer does not answer the original question. OP wants to do this with FME not an online resource. Jan 9, 2017 at 14:22

If you want to treat the CSV files as just being text files, then use a text reader to read them (simplest to just use a single dynamic version rather than separate feature readers). The files will be read in and treated just as though they're a normal text file; schema will be ignored.

You can write them out into one single file using a single text writer. The entire workspace should only consist of those two transformers (one dynamic text reader, one text writer).
