Hi guys,

I would like to write vb code that can change the file extension from .juz  to .txt and remove the first line in the .juz file so I can then import them into MS Access.

Thank you so much in advance.

Try this:

Dim FH As Integer
Dim FH2 As Integer

Dim strPath As String
Dim strPathOut As String
Dim strLineIn As String
Dim strLineOut As String


strPath = "c:\myfolder\myfile.juz"
strPathOut = "c:\myfolder\myfile.txt"


FH = FreeFile

Open strPath For Input As #FH

FH2 = FreeFile

Open strPathOut For Output As #FH2

' skip first line
  Line Input #FH, strLineIn


Do
   
  Line Input #FH, strLineIn
  ' coudl done any updates here
  strLineOut = strLineIn
  
  Print #FH2, strLineOut
   
Loop Until EOF(FH)

Close #FH
Close #FH2

Open in new window
