FileSystemObject Object

Provides access to a computer's file system.

The following code illustrates how the FileSystemObject is used to return a TextStream object that can be read from or written to.

Code

// JScript
var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var a = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", true);
a.WriteLine("This is a test.");
a.Close();

Code

' VBScript
Dim fso, MyFile
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
MyFile.WriteLine("This is a test.")
MyFile.Close

In the example code, the ActiveXObject object is assigned to the FileSystemObject (fso). The CreateTextFile method then creates the file as a TextStream object (a), and the WriteLine method writes a line of text to the created text file. The Close method flushes the buffer and closes the file.
