I try to overwrite a line in a text file using stream writer


but I get this error:

value does not fall within the expected range
Dim K As New IO.FileStream(ItemFileName, IO.FileMode.Open, IO.FileAccess.ReadWrite, IO.FileShare.ReadWrite)
                '  K.Seek(P, IO.SeekOrigin.Begin)

                Dim value As String = Regex.Replace(s, SS(ItemFields.PcCost), newValue)

                NumBytesRead = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.Unicode.GetBytes(value).Length

                Dim bytes() As Byte = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.Unicode.GetBytes(value)

                K.Write(bytes, P, NumBytesRead)
                K.Close()
