I'm read all the files in a folder and outputing the list to a text file using:

   outFile.WriteLine (FileName)

I'm hitting a problem with one of the file names as a , (comma) in it and its not writing the last of the file name, so when i try and read it back i cant find the file.

ideas?

hmm... good point, I shouldn't make assumptions, I double checked my output file and its fine, the input again is failing me.


im just using

open datafile for input as #1
do while not eof(1)
input #1, ItemData
ProcessData
loop

so the ipnut is stopping at the , in the file...

how do i get around this and read in the entire line of text?

If you have one filename per line then it is simply:

Open datafile For Input As #1
Do While Not Eof(1)
    Line Input #1, ItemData
    ProcessData
Loop
Close #1

ok, found the answer.

the way around it is instead of using

Input #1, ItemData


use:

Line Input #1, ItemData


If anyone else has a better way, I'm all ears...
