Hi -

In the online help for VB, there are examples of several ways to retrieve
text from a text file. One way allows you to go to specific areas of the
file. Another way allows you to read in the file line by line. You can use
the example from the online help.

The LEN function will aid you in finding the length.

Good luck!
