How to append text to a file in asp without overwriting it?

I want to append text to a file within asp. I am trying to open the textfile for appending but I can't. I can only open it for writing which obviously rewrites the whole file erasing its previous contents. I have tried the "ForAppending" parameter (value 3) but it doesn't work.

Any ideas on the subject? Any reasons why it doesn't work?
Any workaround you know?


I'd really appreciate your help.



Thank you very much.

Your problem it's the mode of openfile, "ForAppending it's value '8' not '3'

Please, test this code.

-----------------------------------

' Create Object
Set FileObject = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' Open Scream por Append

  Set OutStream= FileObject.OpenTextFile ("file_name", 8)

  OutputString = "your text to append"

  OutStream.WriteLine OutputString

'Clear
  Set OutStream = Nothing
-----------------------------------
