StreamWriter

I am scratching this bit of code together and running into a little unusual behavior.  Irrespective of the path I assign to the file it seems to be placing it in.

C:\Users\symingtonc\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\PIAuditorware\PIAuditorware\bin\Debug\C\ScannerExport

Can explain why this might be and a remedy, I am not receiving an error message at any point.



  Public Function ExportFile() As Boolean
        Dim TempPath As String = "C\ScannerExport\"
        TempPath = My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.MyDocuments

        If Not Directory.Exists(TempPath) Then
            Directory.CreateDirectory(TempPath)
        End If

        TempPath &= "\export.txt"
        If File.Exists(TempPath) Then File.Delete(TempPath)

        If File.Exists("C\ScannerExport\export.txt") Then File.Delete("C\ScannerExport\export.txt")
        Using WriteTo As StreamWriter = New StreamWriter(File.Open("C\ScannerExport\export.txt", FileMode.CreateNew))
            For Each stkItem As XMLStock In StockList
                Dim NewLine As String = String.Format("{0}|{1}|{2}|{3}|{4}|{5}|{6}|{7}", BranchNumber, Now.ToShortDateString, stkItem.LongCode, stkItem.ShortCode, stkItem.ProductDescription, stkItem.CurrentStockUnits, IIf(stkItem.Specific, "TRUE", "FALSE"), IIf(stkItem.MarkedDown, "TRUE", "FALSE"))
                WriteTo.WriteLine(NewLine)
            Next
        End Using
    End Function

delete line 3 :


TempPath = My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.MyDocuments



also, if you want C drive and not C folder


you need to add the colon

c:/

not c/

I was about to edit that out from the question because it is actually a bit misleading.  The paths are entered in lines 12 and 13.    

I wanted to experiment with the path which is why it is done that way.  Line 3 is where I would really like to place the files.

C:\ was the trick.  Maybe I need to take a break.  Many thanks Aly
