Default File release

I am trying to get info to go into a file. The problem I am having is once I create the file and then try to write to it it says the file is being used by another process. Does anyone know how to release the file after it has been created using the System.IO.file

Thank you

Hi there..

flush and dispose??

But you have to wait a little until the OS realize that the file is alone...

Anyway, why using two diferent process?? you can create the file opening a stream for writting....

when you create a file, you can create it and append to it in 1 instance, you dont have to create a file, close it, then re open it for editing.

So you would do something like

Dim fStream As New FileStream("mytxt.txt", FileMode.OpenOrCreate)
        Dim tStream As New StreamWriter(fStream)

        ' Do what ever writing you need to, or what ever reading you need

Apocolypse2005, I'm a programmer - of sorts.
