Will you be storing the username also?

Will you fully secure the encode/decoding code?

How many users?

Hi,
 
 First encrypt the password/username(Information u want to save to the file) after that u can use :

dim freef as integer
dim dataoffile as string

freef = freefile

open "FILE_NAME" as binary as #freef
  get #freef,,dataoffile
close #freef

freef = freefile

open "FILE_NAME" as binary as #freef
  Put #freef, len(dataoffile), #freef
close #freef
