I have created a text file on F: the lan drive. Everynight I have to run a program which should rewrite this file. I do not have delete access on F: I can however erase the contents of the file, with which I am not having any luck. If I use reset procedure, the file is put in read-only mode. If I use append it is write only but I cannot loop until Bof to whitespace the previous records. I cannot use rewrite, erase or truncate as I get I/O errors on these procedures as I do not have rights to delete any file on F: How can I open my text file, loop through it to whitespace any records and then append the new data. This text file is being populated from some list boxes on my form.
Please help if you can.
