The easiest way to save text to a file is to first, open a file on the disk, then write the text out, and then close the file.


Dim ff As Integer
Dim strFileName as String

ff = FreeFile
strFileName = "data.txt"

Open strFileName For Output As ff
Print #ff, strData
Print #ff, strData2
  ...
Close ff

'Save text into the file:
Dim number As Integer
number = FreeFile

Open "Text.txt" & MyIndex For Output As number
   Write #number, "This is a sample."
Close #number

Pretty much the same way, except instead of opening the file for Output, open it for Input and use Input #ff, ...


ex.

Open strFileName For Input As ff
Input #ff, strData
Close

txtBox.Text = strData
