Hello,
 
I found several similar posts, but the documented solution didn't work for my program.

Here's my CSV file opened in Notepad:

"JF7","10192006","ARP","0.4"

The file would be good if I could drop all of the "



Here's my string values, I tried the ("""""", """") but didn't make a different  (I had to use double quotes around old value and new value to avoid error about quot not being declared)

CompanyCode = "JF7"

strCurrentDate = CurrentDate.ToString("MMdyyyy").ToString
strCurrentDate.Replace("#", "")
strCurrentDate.Replace("""""", """")

RegHrs = dsADP.Tables("tblTA_ADP_Hrs").Rows(i)("Regular_Hours").ToString



Here's my file creation:

WriteLine(1, CompanyCode, strCurrentDate, Emp, RegHrs)


Please help!

Thanks,
Jon

read in the csv file
dim a as string= myfilestream.readtoend()
a=replace(a,chr(34),"")

write to csv file
a contains your whole file

Thanks Gangwisch,

I get an error on the last line here.  It doesn't like my (a) argument I'm passing??


        Dim ADPFile As StreamReader
        Dim ADPFileOutput As StreamWriter

        ADPFile = File.OpenText("c:\jb\custom programs\adp\adp.csv")

        Dim a As String = ADPFile.ReadToEnd()
        a = a.Replace(Chr(34), "")

        ADPFileOutput = File.WriteAllLines("c:\jb\custom programs\adp\PRJ7FEPI.csv", a)

You appear to be using VB.Net 2005:

        Dim inFile As String = "c:\jb\custom programs\adp\adp.csv"
        Dim outFile As String = "c:\jb\custom programs\adp\PRJ7FEPI.csv"
        File.WriteAllText(outFile, File.ReadAllText(inFile).Replace(Chr(34), ""))
