How do I setup the script to write new line to next row in single Worksheet, without opening a new workbook in this script?
Option Explicit

Dim strFile, strInputLog, strOutputLog, objFSO, objInput, objOutput
Dim strLine, blnError, intCount, dtmToday, intSummary
Dim objExcel, objWorkbook

Const ForReading = 1

dtmToday = Now()

' Specify input log file.
strInputLog = "D:\Documents and Settings\figueroadaniel\My Documents\ClassPatchInstallation_0792.log"
' Output file.
strOutputLog = "d:\output.txt"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' Open files.
Set objInput = objFSO.OpenTextfile(strInputLog, ForReading)
Set objOutput = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strOutputLog, True)

' Read each line of input log file.
intCount = 0
blnError = False
Do Until objInput.AtEndOfStream
    strLine = objInput.ReadLine
    intCount = intCount + 1
    If (InStr(strLine, "Class") > 0) Then
    
    	Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
		Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("d:\test.xls")

		objExcel.Application.Visible = True
		objWorkbook.WorkSheets(1).Activate
		objWorkbook.WorkSheets(1).Cells(1, 1).Value = strLine
		objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.Close
		objExcel.Application.Quit
   
      
        objOutput.WriteLine intCount
        objOutput.WriteLine strLine
        blnError = True
    Else
        If (blnError = True) Then
            objOutput.WriteLine strLine
            blnError = False
        End If
    End If
Loop

' Close input file.

objInput.Close
objOutput.Close

Hi, try this.  You will need to modify the strColumns value to specify each column names that your inserting data into.

Regards,

Rob.
