    The OpenAsTextStream returns a text stream. You need to set a text stream object equal to the text stream returned by this function:<BR><BR>Dim objTextStream<BR>Set objTextStream = filObject.OpenAsTextStream(ForAppending, TristateFalse)<BR><BR>objTextStream.Write strEnding<BR><BR>objTextStream.Close<BR><BR>Hope this helps! Happy Programming!
