Using the Object FSO I want to read each line to a variable. Some sample for clarity:

Set objTextStream = objFSO.OpenTextFile(FileToOpen, 1)
'Want to have line below read until EOF
txtMsg = objTextStream.ReadLine

What is the syntax for EOF so it does not error out?

Option Explicit
' Set up constants
Const ForReading = 1
Const Create = False

' Declare local variables
Dim objFSO         ' FileSystemObject
Dim objTextStream  ' TextStreamObject
Dim strLine        ' local variable to store Line
Dim strFileName    ' local variable to store fileName

strFileName = Server.MapPath("textfile.txt")

' Instantiate the FileSystemObject
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' use Opentextfile Method to Open the text File
Set objTextStream = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFileName, ForReading, Create)

If Not objTextStream.AtEndOfStream  Then  

Do While Not objTextStream.AtendOfStream  

strLine = objTextStream.ReadLine ' Read one line at a time
Response.Write strLine ' Display that line
Response.Write "<br>"  
 
Loop

End If

' close TextStreamObject
' and destroy local variables to relase memory
objTextStream.Close
Set objTextStream = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
