How To Save And Load Information To And From A Simple Notepad File. <<RESOLVED>>
Hello everyone and thanks for the help ahead of time. This is my very first post, so it might not be up to your standards yet.
But I'll Try!
I have been reading Visual Basic 6 for Dummies, (I know this is not the best source of info) but have recently lost the book. While reading it, I saw a piece of code describing how information from variables or strings (ie. text boxes, labels, and other variables) can be recorded or read from a Windows Notepad file(*.txt). At the time, I didn't think I would need it. Now that the book has been lost, I actually do need this information. I have looked at some of the other self-help sites and they are to advanced for my knowledge. I am obviously still very Newbie. If anyone can Explain it to me and/or possibly supply a Snippet of Code, I would greatly appreciate it.
Again thanks for the help.
If ever you need me, just look to the sky and shout my name.

Help To Save Information To Csv File..
Hi, i require help with transferring information to a csv file. I have declared the variable at the top and used the following function:
Open "C:TheResults.csv" For Append As #1

the check boxes have the following code:
If chgreen = True Then colours = "Green"
and same goes with all of the other check boxes..
is there any way were i can get all of the information saved?

Copy All Text From Textbox, Open Notepad, And Automatically Paste To New Notepad Shee
I am trying to copy all text, that is already in the textbox, to a new notepad sheet.
Step 1. Copy all text in Text1 box to clipboard.
Step 2. Open Notepad
Step 3. Paste clipboard to notepad.
All this should be done with one click of a button.
I get as far as copying everything to the clipboard, and it even opens up notepad, but I still have to manually paste (CTRL-V) into notepad.
I would even like it to ask me what name to save it as as well as where to save it at...just like the Save As function in Word or something.
Here is what I have so far.
Private Sub cmdCopytoClipboard_Click()
MyAppID = Shell("NOTEPAD.EXE", 1)
MyAppID = Clipboard.GetText()

Question On Parsing Notepad Text File With VBA... Please Help
I just got tasked this at work and have a few questions. I found some code from someone at work that did something similar to what i am doing now. Essentially i have a document with requirements in it and some of those requirements have data that refers to definitions as well as some tables. The code that i had originally parsed through the requirements in notepad ( the person copied the relevant information into notepad and then ran his VBA code on that). I decided not to use the way that he did this because he took the information from the notepad file put it into Excel (through VBA) and then manually imported it into one of the applications that we use here. I want to write directly to the application rather than doing all that intermediary stuff. So i tried running my code, it opens the word file but then bombs out on the following line:
Do While Not EOF(1)
What is the syntax to perform this using Word VBA, since this was originally done on a text file? The error that it gives me is: Run-time error '52': Bad filename or number.
Here is a blog of the code:
For k = 1 To 1
Do While Not EOF(1)
Line Input #1, textReq
If (InStr(textReq, "3") = "1") Then
If (name <> "") Then
'exDocument.Worksheets(k).Cells(i, 1).Value = name
'exDocument.Worksheets(k).Cells(i, 2).Value = description
'exDocument.Worksheets(k).Cells(i, 3).Value = Rationale
i = i + 1
reqnum = Trim(Left(textReq, InStr(textReq, Chr(9)) - 1))
name = "IC - " & reqnum & " " & Trim(Right(textReq, Len(textReq) - InStr(textReq, Chr(9))))
Rationale = ""
description = ""
ElseIf (Left(textReq, InStr(textReq, ":")) = "Rationale:") Then
Rationale = Trim(Right(textReq, Len(textReq) - InStr(textReq, ":")))
'description = description & Trim(textReq)
description = description & Trim(textReq)
If (Left(textReq, InStr(textReq, ".")) = "Table 3 " & tablenumber) Then
tablenumber = tablenumber + 1
Essentially all i want to do is search for a string of numbers (the requirement number) and the name is appended after that. Everything else until the next requirement number is either Rationale, description or a table. Currently the code shown was able to handle the Requirement number, rationale, and description and did not have any tables in it. The new document that i have received now has tables. What would be the easiest way to get those tables out of word and into our application. I was told to format the information using html or xml tags when a table is discovered in word and put it into our applicaiton that way. This way when the information is pulled back out of the application and into another word document it is already formatted and is readable, rather than being a continous text string which is what it looks like now when it is pulled out. I know that this is probably a bad description but i didn't want to go into all that much detail. If anyone can help me out on where to get information or some ideas i would really appreciate it.

Exporting Information To A Text File
Apologies if this is in the wrong forum.
I'm fairly new to VB and I'm making a small program for a class. I'm part of a group that goes around repairing and troubleshooting computers around campus. We needed a way to keep track of what we do, so I made a very small program in VB where it's a simple log of that. Basically it's a fill-in the blank type of thing, with a Cancel and a Print button at the bottom. You fill in the Teacher's Name, Room Number, Computer Model, etc. Then once that is all finished you click the print button and go file what was printed along with any other additional comments.
What I'm looking to do is export this information that is filled into these TextBoxes to a text file with a simple layout and a time/datestamp by pressing a CommandButton.
Can anyone help me out with this? It'd be a much cleaner way of filing these issues.
Appreciate help in advance,
Stripping Information From A Text File
I've got a text file and I want to strip out part of it and format it using VB6.
What I have is a series of tests (written in another language) and I want to strip out the numbers that follows '*/'.

--"Test description entered here - omitted for commercial reasons"
--TEST TRACEABILITY:-Requirements:*/1806, */1881, */1807, */1807, */1661, */1662
--*/1663, */1666, */1667, */1668
How can I write a script which will search through this and relate the numbers to the tes number. I want an output to look like
Can anyone advise me how to go about this as I don't know how to go about it.
How Can I Use A Specified Information Saved In A Text File?
I have a program that uses this code to write the info entered by the user in a text file:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
n = Text1.Text
a = Text2.Text
Open "h:RECORDS.txt" For Append As #7
Write #7, n, a
I am using this code to put the first field (na) of info of the text file in a combobox:
Private Sub Command2_Click()
Open "h:RECORDS.txt" For Input As #3
Do While Not EOF(3)
Input #3, na, ag
How can I make my program so it only goes to the next form (ex. form2) when the second field of info (ag) in the text file is entered in the second textbox (a)?
Pulling Information From A Text File
I'm looking to do the following task in visual basic 6 - and I don't know where to start. I've done simple programs before, but I could really do with a hand in the right direction. I currently have a text file, called roles.txt. This is generated from an ldapsearch, but that's irrelevant. These roles change daily and I'd like to create a VB application that will search through based on role name. Let me explain
cn=Role 1,ou=Services,ou=BPSS Application Services,o=accord,c=GB
cn=Role 2,ou=Services,ou=BPSS Application Services,o=accord,c=GB
The text file is full of literally thousands of these - each role has one or more edmpolicies attached to it - put simply I want to create an app where I can type the role name in a box, press go and it will tell me what the EDMPOLICIES are for that role. If it helps all roles are seperated by a space (like above)
Retrieving Information From A Text File. THANK YOU!
I have a program that when data is input it will save that data in a txt file.
In theory it is suppose to retrieve the stored information every time I open the program. However when I close the program and re-open it the information is not retrieved only 0's in the locations the numbers need to be. When I edit that information it writes over the stored information which is what it is suppose to do but I need it to retrieve the information before I edit it.
Any help is appriciated
Saving Text Information In .avi File
I have some text information which i am able to save in .txt file through vb code, but how can i save this text information into .avi file or .mpeg file.
Changing Information In A TEXT File
I am attempting to save some user settings to a text file, then retrieving them as and when needed by my program. The problem is that VB over writes each file you try to add/change something. I know that you can copy the file into a temp file, and edit the text as it is going in, then delete the original file and rename the temp file to the original name (bad explanation sorry).
Now that I know the theory, I am sorry to say that I can not seem to get it to work. Here is what I have so far...
Dim F, Fs, G, TheFile, TempFile, File
TheFile = "config.ini"
TempFile = " emp.txt"
Set Fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set F = Fs.OpenTextFile(TheFile)
Set G = Fs.CreateTextFile(TempFile)
Do Until F.Line = 4
File = F.ReadLine
After the loop I thought I could maybe use another loop to complete the rest of the file, but I think it is pointless in writing that when the first one doesn't even work.
Any help given will be appreciated
If you post any code, could you please keep it as basic as possible and tell me what it is actully doing.

Highlight Incorrect Information From A File To A Text Box
Does anyone know how I could approach this one... or a good link for it.
I want to read a file and output the contents of it in a text box... but I want to say If the text box contains 4 alpha characters in a certain position then highlight it automatically. So output would be:
BOB*2333 S LANE*4454443333~
BLACK*MORE INFO*MORE INFO*INCORRECT INFO~
233*7744 E 158 ST*1234333222~
BLACK*MORE INFO*MORE INFO*INCORRECT INFO~
So I would want 233 highlighted because it needs to be a name or if it was blank - highlight the * before and after it. Or even just change the color.
I appreciate any help you can give me. I'm using VB6.0, thinking about using VB.Net and a pretty new programmer (obviously).
