I need A function so that if I call the function and it records/post the string to the last entry of the textfile specified in the pathname.

Private Function(PathName as string,ErrText as string)

 
if the function were called 4 times, A further example

Private Function("c:/err/err.txt","err1")
Private Function("c:/err/err.txt","err2")
Private Function("c:/dd/other.txt","otherfile")
Private Function("c:/err/err.txt","err3")

the resulting file err.txt would look like in c:/err/
err1
err2
err3

the resulting file other.txt would look like in c:/dd/
otherfile

if file exists in dir it would append the text
if file is not found in dir then a new one must be created.
The file should be closed and saved after.

I need the complete working code for this Function

Thank you.

It does that. The Append file access method creates the file if it doesn't exist already.
