Append data to a text file

Append data to a text file

Question:
How do I append information to a file? This information is inserted by the user, into a text box, and then a command button is clicked to update the text file. Everytime I perform the operation I end up erasing the pre-existing text in the file.

Answer:
When you prepare to output the new data, make sure you open the file For Append:

  Dim hFile As Long  hFile = FreeFile  Open “MyFile.Dat” For Append As #hFile    Print #hFile, NewData$  Close #hFile
