Hi Experts,

I am having an issue with a CSV Writer that I am creating using a string builder, and a datatable when trying to increase or decrease a field value by +/- 1

Below is a part of my code.

This works... and yes, i know its in an infinate loop which.  This is how it is designed for the moment in order to confirm it is writing and will set the loop to the total number of rows shortly.

However...  what i am after is dr.item(5) is always an 1 or a 0 value.  What I need to do is write a duplicate line, with the opposing value so a 1 would change to a 0 and a 0 to a 1.

any and all help appreciated.

 'Location file will be saved
        Dim SaveLocation As String = "C:\Temp\CSV\"
        'File Name with the date and time the file was created for easy reference. 
        Dim filename As String = "TwoFour-" & DateTime.Now.ToString("ddmmyyy-HHmm") & ".csv"
        'StreamWriter to create, save and update the file as necessary - referencing the file name and the save location
        Dim sw As StreamWriter = File.AppendText(SaveLocation & filename)
        Dim i As Integer = 1
        Do Until i = 100
           

            'if the Save location does not exist then create it
            If Directory.Exists(SaveLocation) = False Then
                Directory.CreateDirectory(SaveLocation)
            End If

CSVString1.Append( (dr.Item(5) == "0" ? "1" :  "0" )& ",")

I am sorry, I was writing C# code and not VB.net code, let's try that again, using IIF function:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/27ydhh0d%28v=vs.90%29.aspx
CSVString1.Append( IIf(dr.Item(5) = "0" , "1" ,  "0" ) & ",")

i have gone with a differnet method of creating a new sub for now, and sending the infromation byval and then altering the data that way.

however i will try this again later to see if i can tidy up my code.
