Cut off when using StreamWriter

Posted on 2007-12-04
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I am trying to write a bunch of records returned from a SqlDataReader query to a text file.  When I use  StreamWriter the output stops at the same place every time.  I am using VB.Net 2005.

I can illustrate it using the following code.  Rather than returning a file with 2000 rows, it stops at 1550:

    Public Sub Main()
        Dim x As Integer
        Dim sFileName As String
        sFileName = "C:\Test.txt"
        Dim fs As New FileStream(sFileName, FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write)
        Dim s As New StreamWriter(fs)
        s.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.End)
        For x = 1 To 2000
        Dts.TaskResult = Dts.Results.Success
    End Sub

What am I doing wrong?

why this?:
s.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.End)
also try to close the stream before returning from Sub:

Show us the real code that uses the datareader- how do you iterate through it?
