Well I have gotten this far on my own but i would lilke to make the program where I just update the master.txt instead changing everything if anyone knows a better way to make the PrintDetailLine() method that would be great here's the code


C#:
 using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;


namespace GladRagsCompany
{
    class Set
    {
        const string INPUTFILE = "C:\\MyProjects\\GladRagsCompany\\GladRagsCompany\\Master.txt";
        const string OUTPUTFILE = "C:\\MyProjects\\GladRagsCompany\\GladRagsCompany\\Report.txt";

        
        static uint pageCount = 1;
        static uint maxDetailLines = 30;
        static uint maxData = 45;
       
        
      
        static string[] customerNumber = new string[100];
       

        static StreamReader fileIn;
        static StreamWriter fileOut;

        

        static void Main()
        {
            if (OpenFiles())
            {
                InputValues();
                PrintReportProgram();
            }
         
            CloseFiles();
            Console.ReadKey();
        }

        static bool OpenFiles()
        {
            bool sucessOpeningFiles = true;

            if (File.Exists(INPUTFILE))
            {
                fileIn = File.OpenText(INPUTFILE);
                Console.WriteLine("{0} was opened", INPUTFILE);
            }
            else 
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Error: {0} does not exist\n", INPUTFILE);
                sucessOpeningFiles = false;
            }
            fileOut = File.CreateText(OUTPUTFILE);
            if (File.Exists(OUTPUTFILE))
                Console.WriteLine("{0} was created\n", OUTPUTFILE);
            else
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Error: {0} could not be created\n", OUTPUTFILE);
                sucessOpeningFiles = false;
            }
            return sucessOpeningFiles;
        }


        static void InputValues()
        {
            uint i;
            string lineIn;
           

            i = 0;
            while ((lineIn = fileIn.ReadLine()) != null)
            {
              
                i++;
                ParseLineIn(lineIn, i);
                
            }
            maxData = i;
        }

        static void ParseLineIn(string lineIn, uint i)
        {
            string[] words;

            lineIn = lineIn.Trim();
            while(Regex.IsMatch(lineIn,"[ ]{2}"))
                lineIn = lineIn.Replace("  "," ");
            words             = lineIn.Split(' ');
            customerNumber[i] = words[0];
        }

        static void PrintReportProgram()
        {
            
            ProcessThisRecord();


            
        }
