Default Method or Data member not found

Hi all,

I am in big trouble and i need help to sort out file read write problem.

Following code is not working and displaying error "Method or Data member not found". Please let me know if i need to include any reference file other than scrrun.dll to execute following code.

    Dim fsoObject As New Scripting.FileSystemObject
    Dim txtFileObject As Scripting.File

    If fsoObject.FileExists("c:\conn.ini") Then
        MsgBox "Exists!!!"

        Set txtFileObject = fsoObject.OpenTextFile("c:\conn.ini", ForReading)

        Do Until txtFileObject.AtEndOfStream
            txtFileObject.ReadLine ("[StartUp]")
        MsgBox "Not Exists!!!"

        Set txtFileObject = fsoObject.CreateTextFile("c:\conn.ini", ForWriting)

        txtFileObject.WriteLine ("[StartUp]")
        txtFileObject.WriteLine ("UID=sa")
        txtFileObject.WriteLine ("Password=manish")
        txtFileObject.WriteLine ("Server=Anup")
        txtFileObject.WriteLine ("DBName=thanksdarling")

        MsgBox "File created and data written to the file!!!"
    End If

    Set txtFileObject = Nothing
    Set fsoObject = Nothing

in the line

 Dim txtFileObject As Scripting.File

mybe you meant

 Dim txtFileObject As Scripting.TextStream

The line

  txtFileObject.ReadLine ("[StartUp]")

is wrong, because txtFileObject foes not parameters, it just returns a string

Just for curiosity, did you download that code?

Another suggestion: run with a full compile (Ctrl+F5), in this way the compiler will find the compiler errors before you run, and it will show the first of them in the IDE, highlighting the wrong line.
