I created one log file by below mentioned way.

Sub CreateAfile
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.log", True)
    a.WriteLine("This is a test.")
    a.Close
End Sub

Now i want to add another lines below that line which is already written by me during previous session.

e.g.
This is a test.
This is my second test.

I mean i want to add another line during next session.

Let me know how do i do that ?

Thanks for your time in advance.

Thanks,
buddyp

Don't know why you are using the Scripting object, using simple VB statements you can create the file using code like

  Dim Filenr As Integer

  Filenr = FreeFile
  Open "c:\testfile.log" For Output As #Filenr
  Print #Filenr, "This is a test."
  Close #Filenr

This code has the same behaviour as your code above, but this code is approx. 1 mb smaller ('cause you do not need to add the scripting object as a dependency file).

Whenever you want to add a line to the file you can use code like this

  Dim Filenr As Integer

  Filenr = FreeFile
  Open "c:\testfile.log" For Append As #Filenr
  Print #Filenr, "This is my second test."
  Close #Filenr

This will append the line to the file and not delete the old data you have already stored inside the file.

Try setting your true to false. That should then add to the file instead of overwriting it.
Alternatively use OpenTextFile instead and use the IOMode as ForAppending.
