Hello Experts,
I am using Visual Web Developer from VS2005.

I want my web page to open a sequential log file and write a record into it.  I have the following code which executes.  However, I have no idea where the record is written.  This is my vb code:
        Dim writer As StreamWriter = _
            New StreamWriter("admit.log")
        writer.WriteLine("This is a sample log record.")
        writer.Close()
I want the file admit.log written in my web root directory.  I need to determine the path to that directory.  I need something like the VBSCRIPT Server.MapPath.

Any ideas?  Thanks in advance

Server.MapPath does the trick.

You are correct.  I had tried it previously but could not make it work.  However, I discovered I had a problem with authorizations, so when that was corrected, the MapPath method worked great.

Thanks for the response.
