Input past end of file (Error 62)

See Also    Specifics

You can't read past the end-of-file position. This error has the following cause and solution:

  • An Input # or Line Input # statement is reading from a file in which all data has been read or from an empty file.

    Use the EOF function immediately before the Input # statement to detect the end of file.

  • You used the EOF function with a file opened for Binary access.

    EOF only works with files opened for sequential Input access. Use Seek and Loc with files opened for Binary access.
