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.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the form_load command for FS3 was:
AddObject newObjects.utilctls.SFMain, FS3
The syntax given matches what's specified in
In that case, I would try:
between OpenFile and WriteText. 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.

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. Unfortunately, without knowing what type of
object FS3 is I can't give you any more specifics.

This code is in a command button. All the proper AddObjets are in the
Every time I click the command button I want what ever is typed into
textbox1 and textbox3 to get written to a file
I enter a some info into the textboxes, tap the command button, then
retype some different information into the textboxs and tap the command
What is happening is that only the last piece of data I type into the
text boxes show up in the file.
How do I get it to the information from the textboxes to save each time
I click the command button and not overwite.
abc = textbox1.Text , textbox3.Text
Set File = FS3.OpenFile(filename3)
