Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this code. It should do it
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim FileName As String
    Dim FileNumber As Integer
    Dim Buffer() As Byte
    'Set the path for the file hear
    FileName = "C:\windows\desktop\test.txt"
    FileNumber = FreeFile
    Open FileName For Binary Access Read As FileNumber
    ReDim Buffer(LOF(FileNumber) - 1)
    Get #1, , Buffer()
    Close FileNumber
End Sub
