I'm trying to append to the top of a text file rather then the bottom. How can I do this?
This code writes to the bottom rather then the top.
Set objFile1 = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\offline.txt", 8)
objFile1.Write VbCrLf & strcomputer

Open in new window

Dim objFSO, objFileIn, objFileOut, Content

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFileIn = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\offline.txt")
Content = objFileIn.ReadAll
Set objFileOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile("C:\offline.txt", True)
With objFileOut
    .WriteLine vbCrLf & strcomputer
    .Write Content
End With

Set objFileIn = Nothing
Set objFileOut = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
