In the following code I need to: if line 10,21,32... = n then take the 9 lines above and the 10 line and put them in a buffer and if the 10,21,32... lines  are not n move on without storing the info in the buffer here is the code I have:

if Dir$("C:\PilotInfo\boards.txt") <> "" Then
        frmVeiwInfo.Caption = "not back"
        Wrap$ = Chr$(13) & Chr$(10)
        Open "C:\PilotInfo\boards.txt" For Input As #1
        While Not EOF(1)
            Line Input #1, buf
            linenum = linenum + 1
            For i = 10 To linenum Step 11
                If buf = "n" Or buf = "N" Then
                End If
         frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text = frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text + buf
        Close #1
                Prompt = "C:\PilotInfo\quotes.txt does not exist"
                MsgBox (Prompt), , "Error"
     End If
Thanks in advance

Private Sub Form_Click()
LineNum = 0
MemoLine = 10
frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text = ""
If Dir$("C:\PilotInfo\boards.txt") <> "" Then

       Wrap$ = Chr$(13) & Chr$(10)
       Open "C:\PilotInfo\boards.txt" For Input As #1
      While Not EOF(1)
           Line Input #1, Buf
           frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text = frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text + Buf & Wrap$
           LineNum = LineNum + 1
           If LineNum = MemoLine Then
               MemoLine = MemoLine + 11
               If UCase(Buf) <> UCase("n") Then
                   frmVeiwInfo.Text1.Text = ""
                  Exit Sub
