Description Provides access to a computer's file system. SyntaxScripting.FileSystemObjectRemarks The following code illustrates how the FileSystemObject is used to return a TextStream object that can be read from or written to:

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
a.WriteLine("This is a test.")

In the code shown above, the CreateObject function returns the FileSystemObject ( fs ). 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.
