Hi there,

Yes, you could use the FileSystemObject in client-side VBScript or JScript.

However, because of the browser's security settings, this is usually not allowed. If you are designing this for an Intranet, you could add your site to each client browser's Trusted Sites zone. This allows you to read and write to files.....
