Hi posters (glad to see changes in the messageboard)<BR><BR>I&#039;m writing a VBS class that reads binary files. I&#039;ve written a property, to allow users with ADO 2.5 or greater to use the Stream object, and to allow users with older versions of ADO to use the FSO. The thing is, however, that, even using the classic conversion functions (MidB,ChrB,AscB) when using FSO to get binary data, the data I get with each method doesn&#039;t seem to be the same.<BR><BR>That is, parsing of the file works when read with Stream, but fails when read trough FSO. <BR><BR>Any hints?<BR><BR>Carlos
