Writing to a text file

I'm using the following code below, which works fine, but is there someway I can automatically write to another file when the size of the initial one reaches 400KB and so on, so I could finish up with 10 400KB files rather than one 4MB file?

    CommonDialog1.ShowSave
    DoEvents
   
    If CommonDialog1.FileName <> "" Then
   
            Open Left(CommonDialog1.FileName, Len(CommonDialog1.FileName) - (Len(CommonDialog1.DefaultExt) + 1)) & Mid(CommonDialog1.DefaultExt, 2) For Append      As #1
          For ID = 1 To ProgressBar1.Max

            Print #1, Query
         Next
         Close #1

You could count the number of bytes in Query, and when it exceeds your limit, close the file, and write the rest

dim lngOffset as long
dim lngLen as long
dim lngPart as long
dim TrunkSize as long
dim intFile as integer

Trunksize = 400 * 1024
lngOffset = 1
lngPart = 1
lngLen = len(Query)

while lngOffset < lngLen
  intFile = freefile
  Open Left(CommonDialog1.FileName, Len(CommonDialog1.FileName) - (Len(CommonDialog1.DefaultExt) + 1)) & "." & lngPart & "." & Mid(CommonDialog1.DefaultExt, 2) For Append      As #intFile
  print #intFile, mid(Query, lngOffset, TrunkSize)
  close #intFile

  lngPart = lngPart + 1
  lngOffset = lngOffset + Trunksize
