I want to know why is it necessary to have the @ symbol while writing to a file or while assigning a path..

StreamWriter Det = new StreamWriter(@"\\inrms150\RDMXML$\ItemMaster\Log_ABS\ItemUploadError.txt", true);

Hi
"\" is escape character.

It is not always necessary to have @ symbol always.

You can write like this also:

StreamWriter Det = new StreamWriter(@"\\inrms150\RDMXML$\ItemMaster\Log_ABS\ItemUploadError.txt", true);

StreamWriter Det1 = new StreamWriter("\\\\inrms150\\RDMXML$\\ItemMaster\\Log_ABS\\ItemUploadError.txt", true);
