i&#039m using DeleteFile(filename) throughout my application, then when trying to create a new file right after that with the same name as the file I just deleted, I get a permission denied error becuase the file still exists in the NT directory, even though FileSystemObject can&#039t see it! After a few minutes, the file just magically disappears from the NT directory, and the application works fine...<BR><BR>What the...?<BR><BR>ggeter@hismedia.com
