    reading and writing a file in VB

    Has anyone had any experience reading and writing a file in VB?

    When I write a string variable to a file it puts quotes around the line.

    THen when I read it back, the quotes are there. How do I strip the quotes or make it so that the quotation marks are not there when I write to the file?

    Use Print # instead of Write # to write the file without quotes. Or, use the Replace function to strip the quotes after reading the data.
