Open a file and add entry

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!

When I use your answer TimCottee I get an object required when it gets to the part of writing the record to the file?

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