Please see the related question...now my question is...instead of OVERWRITING the contents of the text file, I would like the output to APPEND to the existing content.  How do I do this?

Hi shaolinfunk,

it should be enough to open the 'ofstream' with and additional open mode parameter:

ofstream os("c:\\debug.txt", ios_base::out | ios_base::app );

Open in new window


Hope that helps,

ZOPPO

CFile myFile("c:\\Test.txt", CFile::modeNoTruncate | CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeReadWrite );

  CString str("This is a test");
  myFile.SeekToEnd();
  myFile.Write(str, str.GetLength() );
  myFile.Close();
