aspx.vb to access a text file read one line untill the end of file

I have a  .txt file that contains numbers like this:


I want a SUB that uses FSO, opens the file and reads the first line and then I run an insert statement to insert that to my database...... it will keep reading the file until the end  of file.

I think I need more help....This is what I have so far:
I added this on top: Imports System.IO

Private Sub GetLine()

        Label2.Text = ""

        Dim sr As System.IO.StreamReader = New System.IO.StreamReader("\\Etta\applications\CoverSheet\CoverSheet.txt")
        Dim s As String

        While (sr.Peek >= 0)
            s = sr.ReadLine
        End While

    End Sub

I will put my inser statement inplace of the MsgBox(s). But I can't get this to work yet.
I also want to do a check to make sure the line that I am reading is Numeric.

ok... you need to assing the permission to the file...
do right click in the file and go security tab and add the ASP.NET user
Elvio Lujan.Net Senior DeveloperCommented:
sorry you manage the permissions from the IIS...

verify the virtual directory in the IIS have read/wirte permisions
apirniaAuthor Commented:
All the permissions are checkd, file and IIS
Elvio Lujan.Net Senior DeveloperCommented:
and in the file into IIS?
apirniaAuthor Commented:
Ok, I resolved that Issue.

I had to add this in my Web.config

 <identity impersonate="true" userName="Domain\Username" password="password"/>

Now I get to work on the real stuff......

Last question.....

I have a Directory with foldernames like this (date time format):

2006.02.08 16.55
2006.02.08 17.55

in my ASP.Net I want to get all the foldernames that start with todays date.

So I did:
CurrentDate = System.DateTime.Now.Year & "." & System.DateTime.Now.Month & "." & System.DateTime.Now.Day

But I dont know how to get the files names in the directory that starts with my CurrentDate??
