In a accounting system in VB6 I need to write a log for every posting to a appending text file, plain ascii
I want to keep the file open in the program, due to closing and open the file on
every report line would I believe ,  give to  much load on server (open/write/close)
But:
multiple users has to add lines to the same file.
What would be the best/save aproach to do this in VB6

Open "log.txt" For Input As #1

There is a share keyword in there somewhere. I don't have a reference manual to find it.
You want to tell the open command to open it shared and read.

My second answer was for vb6

In those days you could use the OPEN statement with a sharing option in read mode to do it.
I would need the vb6 help file to get the exact syntax, but this how to do it.
