kwl,

  What it really means is the file "c:\windows\temp\file2.text" is not existed! Open statement will create file for non-existed file path *only* for Append, Binary, Output, or Random modes.

  Besides, it is better to use the FreeFile function to obtain the next available file number.

eg.  Dim iFile as Integer
     iFile = FreeFile
     Open "C:\temp\test.txt" for output As #iFile

Regards.
