Opening A Text File In Append Mode?

I have a program where I am checking for the existence of a file. If the file exists, I wish to open it in "Append" mode where I can add records to already existing records. If the file doesn't exist, I will open it in "Output" mode. Problem is the file should contain previous data and it does'nt.

How can I open a file and maintain it's contents?

Writing At The 'beginning' Of Text File (append Mode)
Hi all! I try to write to text file using these codes below:

Dim fnum As Integer
dim str as String

fnum = FreeFile()
Open "c: est.txt" For Append As #fnum

Print #fnum, str

Close #fnum

Instead of using Output mode, I'd like to use Append mode. But append mode always adds new data at the end of file. How can I move the pointer so I can add new data at the beginning of file?

Thank you very much! Regards.

Write Text File Binary Append Mode

I am using following code:

vb Code:
Public Sub PutTextToFile(ByVal sFile As String, ByVal sText As String)    'Writes text to file sFile    'Example usage: Call PutTextToFile("C:Programs.txt", "test")    Dim I As Long    On Error GoTo PutTextToFile_Error     I = FreeFile    Open sFile For Binary Access Write Lock Read Write As #I    Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass    DoEvents    Put #I, , sText    ExitHere:    On Error GoTo 0 PutTextToFile_Error:    Close #I    Screen.MousePointer = vbDefaultEnd Sub
It overwrites the existing file. Instead, I want to append the new text to an existing file. How can I do that?

Please help

Opening A File To Append To?
My code:

Where text16.text is the name of a person
and text21.text is the sum of all the information
gathered from the program.

I create a folder and then the file within the folder

If fs.FileExists("c:employee_review" & Text16.Text & ".txt") = False Then
Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:employee_review" & Text16.Text & ".txt")
End If

All the text information is compiled and formatted into text21.text

Open "c:employee_review" & text16.text & ".txt" For Append As #1
Print #1, Text21.Text
Close #1

How do I recall the name of the new file using the "open command" to append the contents of text21.text into this new file?

Opening A File In Read-only Mode
Hey there. I'd like to open a file I'm using in Read-Only mode, but I'm not sure how to do this. Currently, I open the excel file using this procedure:

Public Sub LoadExcelAnt()
Set Active_Excel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set Active_Workbook = Active_Excel.Workbooks.Open(FileName)
Set Active_Worksheet = Active_Workbook.Worksheets(1)
Active_Excel.DisplayAlerts = False
End Sub

So, what do I set to make it Read-Only?

Opening File In Binary Mode
I am right in saying that the following code will open a non-text file and load the contents of the file into a string called TextLine arent I?

VB Code:
Open ResultsArray(5, Index) & ResultsArray(0, Index) For Binary As #Filenumber            If Err.Number = 0 Then                TextLine = String(LOF(Filenumber), " ")                Get #Filenumber, , TextLine                  '                  '                  '                  '  

Cos im doing a search thru a directory of 44 files for "abc" using instr on the textline field but its only returning 14 files whereas the windows search is returning 41 so Im puzzled

Thanks peeps

Opening A File In Binary Mode For Appending?
Ok I want to open a file in binary mode so I can write out a binary array of data to the file. The file could be anywhere from 4KB to 100MB in size. I want to append the data though and not destroy what is already there.

I could read the entire file into memory, append the new data, and write the file back out but I want to avoid that.

Is there a way to open a file in binary mode so I can append data to it? Is there something similiar to

VB Code:
Open FilePath For Append as #1

That will work with binary access?

Opening A Sequential File For Read Access In Shared Mode
Does anyone know if there is a way to open a sequential file for
reading (Output) in a way that the file could be opened for
other processes at the same time for reading. Using either the
File System Object or the older Open "C:MyFile.txt" For Output
As #MyFileHandle approach.

Here's a little context.

I am writing a VB6 program that needs to be able to open up a
text file read a specified number of records and Insert them
into a database. The file is quite large and we would like to be
able to run muliple instanses of this loader program. Either
from one server or from multiple servers while accessing the
same input file. For instance... the first instance of the
program would open the input file and read the first 20000
records inserting them into the database. At the same time a
second instance of the same program would be launced adn it
would read records 20001 through 40000 and intert them into the
database through a separate DB connection.

I must admit I haven't simply tried doing it concurrently using
either the FSO or the older approach so I don't know if it opens
the input file for shared access already.

Thanks for any assistance,

How To Append To Text File
Hi all. First I'd like to say that this has been a really useful forum for me since I recently began learning VB. When I've had questions, searching has usually brought up just what I need.

But for this question I'll have to ask some of you for suggestions.
Basically what I'm trying to do is write the contents of a text box to a text file.
I open the file, print the time and date, the contents of the text box, and then close the file.
My question is:
How can I add some sort of separator line (for example, "---------") right before I close the text file. Right now I could add a line right before Close, but that would just put a line every time I add text. I just want to separate one connection from the other.

Here's my code:

Private Sub cmdDo_Click()
Dim strHoldData As String
strHoldData = txtWrite.Text
txtData.Text = txtData.Text & vbCrLf & strHoldData

Dim tCurrentTime
Dim MyDate
tCurrentTime = Time ' Assign a time
MyDate = Date ' Assign a date
Open "E:Documents and Settingsjason.100ACREMy Documentsprogrammingvb6TESTING.txt" For Append As #1
Print #1, "connection time: " & tCurrentTime
Print #1, "connection date: " & MyDate
Print #1,
Print #1, txtData.Text & vbCrLf
Close #1

txtWrite.Text = "" 'set textbox to blank

End Sub

Hope that you can understand what I'm getting at here.
Would appreciate any help or suggestions.

but that just overwrites it each time

Cannot Append Text To Previous File
I'm able to create the file but everytime I try to append text to it, it erases the first line. Here is the code

Dim fso, TStream
Dim FileName As String
Dim FileMessage As String

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
FileName = "Log File.txt"
Set TStream = fso.OpenTextFile("C:" & FileName, 2, True)
FileMessage = "Test"

Call TStream.WriteLine(FileMessage)

Any ideas?

Append To Each Line In Text File..
I have a list of files on a text file that I need to append to on each line.
This is how I am inputing the text file for now.

Dim i As Integer
i = 1
Dim strData As String
'j = j + 1
'Dim var As String

Open List1.Text For Input As #1

'For a = 1 To i

Line Input #1, strData
List2.AddItem strData
Loop Until EOF(1)
Command2.Enabled = False
MsgBox "End of File reached"
Close #1

Each line is placed on the List2box. All lines look like this:

C:windowssystem32"name of a system file" SysFileA

Next line is
C:windowssystem32"name of a system file" SysFileB

and so on.

I need to append the word "SysCheck1" & "File" to the beginning of each line, remove the letter "C:" and replace it with /hd0, and also change all the "" to "/". In addition, increment the "SysCheck1" string to "SysCheck2" and so on for each line.

This line:
C:windowssystem32"name of a system file" SysFileA

Would become this line:
SysCheck1 File /hd0/windows/system32/"name of a system file" SysFileA

Next file would be:
SysCheck2 File /hd0/windows/system32/"name of a system file" SysFileB
and so on...

I know I can use the Replace function but appending to each line in the beginning and incrementing the first string is where I am lost.

Thank you.

Append Text File But Without Duplicates
Hi everyone,

I am totally new to Access (have a tiny knowledge of Excel VBA but this isn't helping me with this).

Two questions, I need to import over 150 text files daily into 2 tables within Access. The data has to append, but not import duplicate rows. I have worked out how to do the first part - (albeit one file at a time) but I don't know how to get it to ignore duplicate rows;

Option Compare Database
Function Macro2()
On Error GoTo Macro2_Err

DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "myspec", "myatextfiles", "C:myATextFile01.txt", True, ""

Exit Function

MsgBox Error$
Resume Macro2_Exit

End Function

Secondly, is there a way of importing multiple files which sit in a specified folder? There are 75 files with the following name: myATextFile01.txt, myATextFile02.txt, myATextFile03.txt....and so on 'A' being the key to which table it should append to in Access. The second set of files are the same, but with 'B' as the identifier; myBTextFile01.txt...

Any help/advice would be most appreciated

Append New Text Line To Text File

How To Append A Text File In An Existing Excel File

I am using the following code to run an Access2000
Macro from VB6.

      A.Visible = False

      A.OpenCurrentDatabase ("C: estTest.mdb")

Append Text File To Access Database
I hope i'm posting in the right forum. I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips how how to append a text file to an Access database. My text file is written in notepad. Used semicolon(";") as a delimeter. I want to take the record in the text file and append them to the existing records in the Access table. I want to use vb to create a program that will do this. I never done anything like this before so i dont know how to start.
Do i open the text file and place the records into a 2 dimensional array and then save it to the access table? Is it possible to do this? Or is there a better way?

Thanx in Advance

Append Text To An Existing Internet File
I have a url of a file that is read/write to all: http://...../filename.txt

By entering this URL in the IE you are prompted to save it to disk without having to enter a userid/password, so the file is publicly available.

What I want to do is open it and append text to it- I'm trying to write to a log file that already exists at this URL when a user updates his/her workstation.

How do I use the HTTP internet functions to open this file and append text to it? I have been using wininet.dll functions and need to stick to this.

I have tried all of the tricks with HttpSendRequestEx, InternetWriteFile, etc, however I have not found an article that addresses this particular situation.

Maybe what I am attempting is not possible? I don't want to use the FTP interface because that requires a username/password combo and that would stop the automatic process of writing to the file behind the scenes because the user is not going to know why they are being prompted for a userid/password, but since the URL is already public, it can be directly accessed.


Append To Same Line In Text File Without Quotes
Is there anyway to have VB append text to a text file on the same line as many times as a user clicks a cmd_button and NOT put quotes around it? Here’s the code that I have, just so y’all can see what I’m doing. I’ve tried with FSO and without… same thing. Every time the user clicks “cmd_new” it adds the text to the file but on a new line instead of continous:


VB Code:
'this is just a tester.. the actual file will be saved in the "my_creations" directoryOpen "C: xt.txt" For Append As #1   Print #1, txt_openfont.Text & txt_sel_font.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opensize.Text & txt_sel_size.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opencolor.Text & txt_sel_color.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_sel_charClose #1


VB Code:
Dim FSO As New FileSystemObjectDim Stream As TextStream If Len(Dir$(App.Path & "my_creations" & txt_name.Text & ".txt", vbNormal)) = 0 Then   'file doesnt existSet Stream = FSO.CreateTextFile(App.Path & "my_creations" & txt_name.Text & ".txt")Stream.WriteLine txt_openfont.Text & txt_sel_font.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opensize.Text & txt_sel_size.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opencolor.Text & txt_sel_color.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_sel_charElseOpen App.Path & "my_creations" & txt_name.Text & ".txt" For Append As #1Print #1, txt_openfont.Text & txt_sel_font.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opensize.Text & txt_sel_size.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_opencolor.Text & txt_sel_color.Text & txt_close.Text & txt_sel_charClose #1 End If

Any ideas?? Sorry for the REALLY wide post, lol

Copying A Text File From A Pocket PC To A PC In Binary Mode
I use the following code to copy a text file from a Pocket PC to a PC, in Visual Basic.

The text file is saved in a Byte Array called bytBuffer.

Open "C:eoordeling.txt" For Binary As intFreeFileID

For intWriteLoop = 0 To lngBytesRead

Put #intFreeFileID, intWriteLoop + 1, bytBuffer(intWriteLoop)


Close intFreeFileID

When lngBytesRead has a value that's higher than 32500, I get an error that says "Overflow".

Is 32500 the limit for writing to a file in binary mode?

I've already tried to copy the file in 2 or 3 stages, but I still get the same error.

What's the solution for this problems, or are there any alternatives for copying a text file (aproximately 80 kb) from a Pocket PC tot a PC?

Opening Word For Append
I have just found out how to create a new instance of a word document, from MKoslof. The only problem is that the document is cleared each time before opening. That is, it opens a file the same way that the following code does:

open "My Output File.doc" for output as #1

But I would like it to open with the existing data, that is:

open "My Output File.doc" for append as #1

Can the following code be modified to allow me to append the word document rather than open it as a new file:

Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim objWord as object
Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")

objWord.Application.Visible = False

objWord.Documents(1).Paragraphs(1).Range.Text = "HEADER"
With objWord.Documents(1).Paragraphs(1)
.Alignment = 1
.Range.Font.Name = "Arial"
.Range.Font.Size = 20
.Range.Font.Bold = True
.Range.Text = "HERE IS MY HEADER"
End With

With objWord.Documents(1).Paragraphs(2)
.Alignment = 0
.Range.Font.Size = 12
.Range.Font.Bold = False
.Range.Text = vbCrLf & "Here is the date: " & Date
End With

objWord.Documents(1).SaveAs "C:TestDoc.doc"
Set objWord = Nothing

End Sub

I would like to adjust font size and other things so I would prefer to use the last peice of code. I do however, need to be able to add to an existing file, rather than create a new one.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.


How Do I Display Text Value For Indexed Combobox In Update Mode File Of LoadControls?
On an update form during initial data load of records to be processed I want to display the combobox text value for the record selected. On the initial load and as I scroll through the records the text value of the combobox should change based on the value in the master record column that contains the index value for the combobox index. All I can ever get to display is either the index number or the first text value of the combobox's record set. How can I get the corresponding text value to display?

Here is the initial load of the combobox record set:

Private Sub LoadSeminars()
   With mrsSeminars
        .Open "Seminars", gcnAP, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTable
        Do Until .EOF
            cboSeminars.AddItem !Seminar_Title
            cboSeminars.ItemData(cboSeminars.NewIndex) = !Seminar_ID
        cboSeminars.Text = !Seminar_Title
    End With
End Sub

Here is the load of the data to be updated:

Private Sub LoadControls()
 With mrsBrochures
        txtSeminar_ID = !Seminar_ID
        txtFromDate = !From_Date

*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.

Opening Forms In Add Mode
I am trying to use a button to open a form in add mode, so no records are displayed. This can be set when using a Switchboard but must be possible using a line or two of VB code. The current code for the button is:

Private Sub Button1_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Button1_Click

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

stDocName = "PAYMENTS"
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Button1_Click

End Sub

Does anyone know how to change this, to open in add mode.

Thanks in advance
