    I have some more than 400+ scripts to run in scheduled time. So I have added all the job entries in a file.
    Anyone please guide me to load this cronfile to the crontab…

    crontab filename

    This is the simplest way to add the cron file entry to the crontab. For example, if you added all the cron entries in a file named cron_file.txt, just save the file and execute the below comamnd. Make sure you are in the directory where the cron_file.txt file is present.

    crontab cron_file.txt

    To directly edit the crontab, refer https://www.spytm.com/questions/topic/how-to-add-job-to-the-crontab/
