Hi Guys,

I have a program I'm working on with multiple combo boxes on multiple forms. A lot of the combo boxes are labeled the same name. Ie ComboBox1.

Can you Use StreamReader In Public Module / Function

 I'm trying Loading Text Files In to a Combo Boxes. I have multiple forms with same combo boxes. I would like to reduce the amount of code im using...

This is an example of how im reading my text file in to the combo box.

   Dim objReader_TextFile1 As New System.IO.StreamReader("c:\\Text_Files\TextFile1.txt")
                    Do While Not objReader_TextFile1.EndOfStream

Or is there a better / different way of doing this?
