I've whittled down my FSO problem. I'm working fine up until I get to the FSO section, so I know it's not the database, but it's the FSO. Question...When I look at the details of a file in Win2000, it doesn't have the file extension like most os's. Could this be the problem??? The database returns a record of user.txt, the FSO is looking for the same filename, but only sees user ??
