Can anybody point me to microsoft documentation that shows that 

OPEN FOR OUTPUT LOCK READ WRITE

is the same as OPEN FOR OUTPUT LOCK READ?


I believe they are equivalent but this MS doc does not help me.


Sub OpenWrite()
Open "C:\aaatmp\lastaltMMacro.txt" For Output Lock Read As #1
MsgBox "While this message displays, try opening file with notepad"
Close #1
End Sub
Sub OpenReadWrite()
Open "C:\aaatmp\lastaltMMacro.txt" For Output Lock Read Write As #1
MsgBox "While this message displays, try opening file with notepad"
Close #1
End Sub
