Dear Friend,

As i know there is no restriction in text file size.

are you concating the text in string variable? or are you keeping the text in any textBox control before writing to the text file? If you did, change logic. Apped to the text file directly.

Dim fs As FileSystemObject
Dim fst As TextStream
Set fst = fs.OpenTextFile("YourFile", ForAppending)

Do
   fst.Write YourText$
loop

There are no restrictions -- check your diskspace / operating system permissions...

Please let us see the code that you're using to write to file.

rehman123,

My suggestion is: Save your data to a Richtext file. It isn't much difficult to do so, nor will you need to make many change in your code. Use RichTextBox activex control to do that. With RTB you can store large amounts of data which is not possible with plain TextBox.

Well,

There is no restriction but the problem may occur on your clipboard. when you copy the data, it may be too large to be saved to text file. Try to fragment the data that you want to copy.

I hope that helps....
