Flushing I/O Buffer

Question:
Is there a way within VB to flush information sent to a file? Normally, information is buffered and not sent to the file until the buffer size is exceeded or the file is closed. I'm looking for a way to flush the output buffer without explicitly closing the file.

Answer:
Whenever I want to do this type of operation, I normally close the file, and reopen it for writing/appending. That seems to be the most reliable way. I don't know of a VB "flush" command like there is in C.
