I need help with a program that will have 2 textboxes that when you put your initals in one and your last 3 digits of your SSN in the second one it opens a file named combined and writes a record in the XXX123 = XXX123 format.  Everytime that this program is ran it will open the same file and write a new record to the file.

Dim intF As Integer
intF = FreeFile()
Open "MyFile.Txt" For Append As #intF
Print #intF,txtInitials.Text & txtSSN.Text
Close #intF

And that is all there is to it!

You should replace the txtInitials and txtSSN with the names of the textboxes that this information is recorded in.
