          It's in the same line. The location for the merge goes in the brackets that immediately follow the mergeRecords() e.g.

           

          app.activeDocument.dateMergeProperties.mergeRecords(FILELOCATIONGOESHERE);

           

          This does not have to be one file location written out in full either, it can be a variable that has been declared elsewhere e.g.

           

          var csvFile = File.openDialog('select TXT file');
          app.activeDocument.dateMergeProperties.mergeRecords(csvFile);
