If you only have 1 file to do, then the simplest method is to edit the file and write the 12 lines to another file.

Thanks for your prompt reply - the problem is that the data within these lines of text will change - I want my customer to have visibility of these 12 lines but no more of the file so the newly created file containing just the 12 lines can be viewed at any time with its current content displayed.
