Hi
I have written the following ode to read through a text file
I am missing the looping part to get to the end of the code
What additional code do I need to loop through all the lines of the text file?


   Sub oReadFile(ByVal oTextFilePathAndName As String)
        Try
            Dim oReadLine As String
            Dim oReader As System.IO.StreamReader
            oReader = System.IO.File.OpenText(oTextFilePathAndName)
            With oReader

                oReadLine = .ReadLine

                .Close()
            End With
            oReader = Nothing
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

Something like this?
 Sub oReadFile(ByVal oTextFilePathAndName As String)
        Try
            Dim oReadLine As String
            Dim oReader As System.IO.StreamReader
            oReader = System.IO.File.OpenText(oTextFilePathAndName)
            With oReader
            Do
                oReadLine = .ReadLine
            Loop Until oReadLine Is Nothing
                .Close()
            End With
            oReader = Nothing
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub
