Is there an other way to test the end of a file? Is EOF only for ASCII files? I know in C there's an "feof" can test the end of a binary file, what's VB's?

EOF(1) True means end of data has been reached in ascii or binary files.

Or.. after opening the file.. you can test the for the length of the file by using the LOF(file number) filenumber. While processing the file you can use the Seek(file number) function to either read the current file position (when used on the right side of an equation)..or to set it to another place (when used on the left side of an equation).
