Actually, the interesting thing is that based on the details of the OpenFile function, the code supplied shouldn't work at all. There is a second parameter to OpenFile that tells how the file should be opened, and according to the help the default for that parameter is 0, which is Read Only.

This moves 'current position in the file' to 0 bytes offset from end of file. Not guaranteed to work without tweaking, but let us know if that's any help. --- In nsbasic...@yahoogroups.com , "Eric Pankoke" <epank...@...> wrote: > > My guess is that you're not using the right command to append to the > file, so it's simply opening the file and wiping out the contents every > time you call OpenFile.
