Batch (BAT) scripting to append to file without new line

5
Hi

I would like to create a batch file (bat) where it outputs some text (either by echo or calling some other script) and append to an existing text file. However, everytime a > (or >>) is used, it automatically adds a new line afterwards. How can this be avoided please?

For example,

echo a > text.txt
echo b > text.txt
echo c > text.txt
"....... calling some other java script..... " > text.txt
echo d > text.txt
echo e > text.txt

This would make the text.txt file look like something like this:

a
b
c
hello
d
e

My goal is to make the content of text.txt to look like this:

abchellode

Can you please help?...

Many thanks!

I do quite a lot of batch files but I am not sure how to do that , if you are using vbscriot anyway can you not use that to add the text?
