when editing a record it doesnt save

I have a button in main.frm called edit with this

Private Sub cmdEdit_Click()
On Error Resume Next
Enabled = False
Load frmAccountDetails
frmAccountDetails.Populate (lstAccounts.ListIndex)
End Sub

and this in details.frm
Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
Dim FileNo As Integer
On Error Resume Next

FileNo = FreeFile
Open "Accounts.ini" For Append Shared As #FileNo
Print #FileNo, Text_Email.Text & ";" & Text_Passwd.Text & ";"
Close #FileNo

frmMain.Enabled = True
Unload frmAccountDetails
End Sub

Public Sub Populate(ByVal Record As Long)
'On Error Resume Next
    Dim lngFHandle As Long
    Dim strLine As String
    lngFHandle = FreeFile()
    Open "Accounts.ini" For Input As #lngFHandle
    Dim intRecord As Long
    For intRecord = 0 To Record
       Line Input #lngFHandle, strLine
    'That has gone through the file till we have the correct record
    Text_Email = Split(strLine, ";")(0)
    Text_Passwd = Split(strLine, ";")(1)
End Sub

but is not saving the edited record!!! why is that?

this is the add button in main.frm that is working fine, but every time I add a record it doesnt show
until I reload the app..

Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()
On Error Resume Next
Enabled = False
End Sub

Try closing the file after you populate it. Also Write #fileno  instead of Print and see if that makes a difference. Also You might need a path to the Accounts.ini file.

ok I just added Close #lngFHandle
at the end of the populate, but now its making a new record!
Bob LambersonSoftware EngineerCommented:
I guess I was expecting that your call to populate the new record would append a new record and the cmdOK button would be the button to edit any changes to the populated values. At least that's what it appears the code is doing, but of course I have not tested it.
