Opening Text File, Outputting It To Textbox
How do I open a textfile, and have it's contents outputed to a textbox? The path must be file.ext .. I looked at some of the tutorials but didn't find a direct example, tried
Dim checkfile As String
Open App.Path & "conf.cfg" For Random As checkfile
txt1.Text = checkfile
which didn't do anything, was a longshot : ... also conf.cfg, textfile saved with the extension .cfg, shouldn't be problem ...

Outputting To A Text File
Lo all, i'm new to this so try to bare with me
I've been creating a DataBased based program for
storing people's details. I won't bore you with the details
but its basically a fancy AddressBook with new fields etc.
Could anyone tell me how to create a button that would save
all (or just the current) database entry to a text file?
Its basically so we can print the details off easier without
using "Me.Print" etc.
If its required I can post the source files in a .zip or .rar.

Outputting To A Text File.
Does anyone have any tips (or know of any good web sites/tutorials) for neatly formatting text in an output file (.txt). I'm finding it difficult to get everything lined up with headers, and because some of the bits of data are of different length, all the bits of data in my tables are out of position.

If Statements - Text File Outputting?
I have a program which reads a text file, line by line, then outputs certains lines to a new text file. Heres an example of a 2 lines in my text file.
H 623556348762 company1
H 623556898798 Company2
Each record begins with a H, therefore in the above example i have 2 records. When the code reads the text file, it outputs those records when D08 comes last in the lines, see record 1 above(company1). BUT when D08 comes in the middle of the record it does not get outputted, see record 2, company2. So if theres a D01 or any other line after a D08 line it ignores my Rule to output.
WHY is this happening to me?!! Ive pasted the IF Statements below which take care of the selection criteria. Basically, i need to output all records which have a D08 line , no matter of its position within the record.
Paste the code below into a text file to make it more readable.
'' if this record is still okay
If useThisRecord Then
'' now check through line by line to see if it contains a D93 record
For j = 0 To UBound(strRecord)
'' if there is in fact a D93 record, then check if there's a P field
If Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D93" Then
'' if there is a P at position 62 then this record is not okay
useThisRecord = Not (Mid$(strRecord(j), 62, 1) = "P")
If Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D12" Or Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D08" Or Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D93" And Mid$(strRecord(j), 62, 1) = "S" Then
useThisRecord = True
Outputting Strings To A Text File
Hiya, what I want to do is output a series of string variables to a simple .txt file. I know how to do this, but the problem is it outputs the "" marks as well. I want to get rid of these as they can't be read by another program that reads the text file. However the program I'm writing must be able to read the values in the file back as strings. Can anyone help?
Thanx in advance,

"Mary Jacobs", 430, 350, 700, 630, 290
Using VB6 and reading this text file, lets call it customers.txt, how can I output each customers name with their calculated total purchases into another textfile lets call it custtot.txt that would look like this:

Does this make sense??

Help Outputting Text File Info To A Listbox
Ok, so I've come up with a program that reads in a list of names and sorts them in ascending or descending order according to the option buttons selected by the user. The only problem is I'm having some trouble outputting this information to a list box so I have no idea if my program works or not. I was hoping maybe someone could tell me what it is that I need to do to get this to output. Could it have something to do with the People subroutine?
Thanks in advance!

Outputting To TextBox Rather Than A DataReport
Right now I have a SQL statement in my DataEnvironment outputting its results to a DataReport. Is there a way to output those same results to a TextBox? My code is:
Private Sub Command16_Click()

strCR = Form1.Combo2
'close-open the rs to refresh
If DataEnvironment1.rsCommand1.State = adStateOpen Then DataEnvironment1.rsCommand1.Close
On Error Resume Next
Outputting SQL Statement Result To TextBox
Greetings. I have a SQL Statement query that outputs its results into a DataReport. I'd like to be able to pipe the results to a TextBox instead. I've been to many different forums and no one seems able to answer why this isn't working.
I have set the TextBox parameters for DataSource, DataMember and DataField to that of the Connection, Command and Recordsource.
Like I said, I've searched several different forums and many people report this same problem. People ask if they bound the three parameters I listed above for the TextBox, and everyone said they did.. Then no more ideas.
I know this is done all the time, so someone must know the trick to it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Opening .txt File In Textbox On A Child Form
I'm making a MDI Notepad. When my program starts there is no Child form visible, so only the MDI form with the menu.
It uses the Common Dialog (cdl1) to open files with.

Private Sub mnuOpen_Click() Dim file As String cdl1.Filter = "Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt|All files (*.*)|*.*" cdl1.ShowOpen file = cdl1.FileName Open file For Input As #1 txtmain.Text = Input(LOF(1), 1) Close #1End Sub
Why doesn't this work? Which code do I need?
Hope you can help.

*RESOLVED* Using Text File As String Input For Opening Other Text Files
OK, I've been banging my head trying to get this one little piece to work (that I had working prior to a loss of power on Friday) but I cant remember the syntax I used to get it right.
What I'm doing is opening 1 text file and using it as the input in a loop to open and parse mutiple text files to a text box.
Heres the part that doesn't work;
Open "rbt.txt" For Input As 1
Do Until EOF(1)
Open " " & rbt.txt & ".txt" For Input As 2 'THIS IS THE PART THATS not working !
Line Input #2, slist
s = s & slist & vbCrLf
Upt_log_txt.Text = s
I know its a syntax (read as placement) issue but I cant get the right combo down.

Outputting Text Lines?
I have a text file which contains lines of data. I only need to output certain lines based on the following criteria:-
Each new record begins with "H", ie header record. Then within each header record i can have muliple lines of "D" records, i.e detail records.
For each record beginning with "H" i
ONLY OUTPUT lines, beginning with D08 or D12 or D93
See example test lines below.
example of text file:-
H 20397337568237 company1
H 203866547658769 company 2
H 237693709283470 company3
There are 3 records in the above example. I do not want to output record 1,compnay 1 as it doesnt have a D08 or D12 or D93 beneath it.
I do want to output record 2,companY 2 because it has a D08 beneath it.
I do want to output record 3 , company 3, because it also has a D08 beneath it. However record 3 will not output for me when i use the code below, because D08 is not at the end of line?? Dont know why this is happening, Can anyone re-jig my if statement.
If useThisRecord Then '' now check through line by line to see if it contains a D93 record '' For j = 0 To UBound(strRecord) If (Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D12") Or (Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D08") Or Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "H20" Or (Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D93" And Mid$(strRecord(j), 62, 1) = "S") Then useThisRecord = True Else useThisRecord = False End If ''if there is in fact a D93 record, then check if there's a P field If Left(strRecord(j), 3) = "D93" Then '' if there is a P at position 62 then this record is not okay '' useThisRecord = Not (Mid$(strRecord(j), 62, 1) = "P") End If Next End If

Freezing Richtextbox From Scrolling While Outputting Text
Hi all ... just wonder if there is any codes out there that can freeze the richtextbox from scrolling when outputting a long string of text.
My problem is when outputting a large amount of lines into a richtextbox, it tends to scroll along the last line of input. I want it to be fixed at the top of the richtextbox when outputting. Sometimes .. it remains at the top ... but sometimes .. it follows the last line ... this is weird ... probably due to the system graphic memory ...
Appreciate if anyone can tell me how to freeze the richtextbox when outputting.
