  Dim fso, f, f1, fc, s
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      TheFile = Server.MapPath(Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME"))
      loc = InStrRev(TheFile,"\")
      TheFile = Left(TheFile,loc)
  Set f = fso.GetFolder(TheFile)
  Set fc = f.Files
%>
<%
Set TitleFile = fso.OpenTextFile(TheFile & "yourfile.txt")
TextBuffer = TitleFile.ReadAll
TitleFile.Close
%>


this will read the entire file into the "TextBuffer" variable.

Why did you delete "Getting a value from a listbox"? Because my solution worked?
