In VB6 I could open a file for input then open a file for output and then write any part of a line from the input file to the output file see sample below.  

I want to do exactly the same thing in vb.net,  I have found example which show me how to read a file and write static text to a file but I can not find any help on how to write a string from the file I just opened and read.

Any help greatlt appreciated.
Private Sub Form_Load()
 
Open "C:\Users.ini" For Input As #1
Open "C:\StationID.ini" For Input As #2
 
 
Do While EOF(2) = False And EOF(1) = False
Open "C:\Config.NT" For Output As #3
Line Input #2, Temp1$
Print #3, "dos = high, umb"
Print #3, ";device=%SystemRoot%\system32\himem.sys"
Print #3, ";device=%SystemRoot%\system32\emm386.exe"
Print #3, "EMM =RAM"
Print #3, "FILES=80"
Print #3, "device=C:\utils\netid.exe /d:" & Temp1$
Print #3, ""
Print #3, "REM Added by Pervasive.SQL V8 install:"
Print #3, "DEVICE=C:\PVSW\BIN\BTRDRVR.SYS"
 
Close #3
 
Line Input #1, Temp$
FileSystem.MkDir "C:\WorkStationIDs\" & Temp$
 
FileSystem.FileCopy "C:\Config.NT", "C:\WorkStationIDs\" & Temp$ & "\Config.NT"
Loop
 
 
Unload Me
 
End Sub

In .NET you can use StreamReader and StreamWriter to do that!
Example:

        Dim fileName As String = "d:\test.txt"
        Dim fileNameOutput As String = "d:\testOutput.txt"
 
        Using writer As New IO.StreamWriter(fileNameOutput)
 
            Using reader As New IO.StreamReader(fileName)
 
                While Not reader.EndOfStream()
                    Dim result As String = reader.ReadLine()
                    writer.WriteLine(result & " some extra text")
                End While
 
            End Using
 
        End Using
