What am I doing wrong with freefile
What's wrong with my code - which is designed to count the number of lines in long ascii files and gives the user a chance to abort the process:
int_current_file_number = FreeFile
cmdCount.Visible = False
cmdStop.Visible = True
Open lstrFileName$ For Input As int_current_file_number
Do While EOF(int_current_file_number) = False
Line Input #int_current_file_number, str_input ' input file in str_input to count lines
lngNumberLines = lngNumberLines + 1 ' increment lines
If lngNumberLines Mod 1000 = 0 Then ' return focus to system every 1000 lines, update count
lblLines = "(total: " & lngNumberLines & ")"
If blnAbort = True Then ' if user clicked stop then clear count and show count command button
lblLines.Caption = "(total: Unknown)"
cmdCount.Visible = True
cmdStop.Visible = False
If I click the 'cmdstop' button somehow the int_current_file_number is incremented by one and the do...loop continues and produces a 'bad file number error'. The sub isnt revisiting the first line of code again (I used breakpoints) so how is it incrementing....??
No doubt it is some simple oversight but I just can't figure it out. Thanks for your time.
