Your question is a little vague....If I understand you correctly you can try this:

Dim sLine     As String

' * * * * * * *

Open pathtofile For Input As #1

While Not EOF(1)
 Line Input #1, sLine
Wend

Hi,
If you want to have all the lines in an array or a textbox
here is a small code for it.

=========== START CODE =============

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim OneLine$
Dim AllLines$
Dim inFile
Dim Wrap

Wrap = Chr$(13) & Chr(10)

'* you can use this to open a file or
'*(you need a component: COMDLG32.OCX) >>>
'* CommonDialog1.ShowOpen
'* Open CommonDialog1.filename For Input As #1

'* >>> You can use this to open a file
'* path(myFolder) and file name (myFile.txt)
inFile = "c:\myFolder\myFile.txt"
Open inFile For Input As #1

While Not EOF(1)
    Input #1, OneLine
    AllLines = AllLines & OneLine & Wrap
Wend

Close #1
Text1.Text = AllLines '* (Make Text1.text MultiLine=true)
End Sub


======== END CODE ========


Notes:

1. The Textbox limited to 32 KB.

2. You can use array like A(i) to hold the lines one by one but    than you need to count the number of lines first.

3. You can write to a new file (post if you need the code).

- What do you want to do with the lines?

I hope it helps some.

Shay.
