Default How to convert Binary file to Text File

Can someone show me how to convert a binary file to a text file?

This will automate the steps that I do manually by opening the Binary file in Wordpad and saving it as File Type Text Document.
I need the file to be text format so I can read the contents via VB's Line Input command.
