    Unique File Extensions

    [Originally posted by Jon McKinley]

    Is it possible to create and use unique file extensions (ex. filename.<u>row</u>) with VB6? If so can someone point or push me in the right direction?

    You can create a file with any extension you want. And as long as the file is an ascii file the Open statement will open no metter the extension.

    Others will have to comment on binary access, but I's guess there's no file extension restrictions...

    You will probably want to create an file association for your extension; http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=322 shows you how.
