Concludes input/output (I/O) to a file opened using the Open statement.
[[#]filenumber] [, [#]filenumber] . . .
If you omit filenumberlist, all active files opened by the Open statement are closed.
When you close files that were opened for Output or Append, the final buffer of output is written to the operating system buffer for that file. All buffer space associated with the closed file is released.
When the Close statement is executed, the association of a file with its file number ends.
This example uses the Close statement to close all three files opened for Output.
Dim I, FileName For I = 1 To 3 ' Loop 3 times. FileName = "TEST" & I ' Create file name. Open FileName For Output As #I ' Open file. Print #I, "This is a test." ' Write string to file. Next I Close ' Close all 3 open files.
