in reply to Need a little help appending lines

If all the lines in your first file look like those in the sample, why not just read the second file (the one with the port numbers) and build the first file from scratch?

I think some more information about the first file (Address1=, etc) may be in order, as I suspect there is much more to this file than has been revealed.

    There's a lot more to the file where I get the port number from, I just used an example, but here's a more descriptive example of the file I pull the port out of: example.txt:, line from example txt:
    entry_entry_host_entry 8080/tcp # hostname entry entry
