this script will output my Arguments to a msgbox.
I'm tryingto figure out how(if there is a way) to have it save/output it to a file(txt) instead.

Thanks in advance,

'=============================================
Option Explicit
Dim vArg, aArgs(), iCount
If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 then
MsgBox "No Arguments Supplied"
WScript.Quit
Else
ReDim aArgs(WScript.Arguments.Count - 1)
For iCount = 0 to WScript.Arguments.Count - 1
aArgs(iCount) = WScript.Arguments(iCount)
MsgBox aArgs(iCount)
Next
End If

Dim oShell, sLogEntry
Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
sLogEntry = "Script was run with :"
For iCount = 0 to UBound(aArgs)
sLogEntry = sLogEntry & vbCrLf & aArgs(iCount)
Next
oShell.LogEvent 4, sLogEntry

Something like...

Option Explicit

Dim vArg, aArgs(), iCount
If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 then
    MsgBox "No Arguments Supplied"
    WScript.Quit
End If

Dim sLogEntry
sLogEntry = "Script was run with :" & vbCrLf
For iCount = 0 to WScript.Arguments.Count - 1
    sLogEntry = sLogEntry & WScript.Arguments(iCount) & vbCrLf
Next

Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
Dim fileName, fso, f
fileName = "c:\someFile.txt"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fso.OpenTextFile(fileName, ForWriting, True)
f.Write(sLogEntry)  
f.Close
