File Data Type

File Data Type

The FILE data type gives access to files. Files can be opened in text or binary mode. For more information, see TEXTMODE Function (File).

You can read from or write to a file by creating input and output streams, respectively. To do so, use the CREATEINSTREAM Function (File) and CREATEOUTSTREAM Function (File). For more information, see InStream and OutStream Data Types.

If you are running on the RoleTailored client and do not specify the uniform naming convention (UNC) path of a file, FILE functions access files on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.

If you are running on the Classic client and do not specify the UNC path of a file, FILE functions access files on the client.
