Hi Dovberman;

Without the code where the exception happened it is difficult to tell you where the error is. But from the error the variable StartIndex is holding an invalid value which is outside the legal range. Post your code so we can help you.

I see nothing on that file that has a variable called StartIndex. Can you identify the codepage where the exception is thrown on and try to find the line that it is happening on and post that information please.

There is no variable in the entire solution that has the name StartIndex.

I found this reference:

However, I do not understand the explanation.

Set a breakpoint on every line that has a Substring call. You are passing an invalid index to one of them, you just need to figure out which one it is.

I set breaklines to isolate the offending code.

A file name search for *.txt failed because there were no text files in the referenced directory.

Thanks for your help.
