The Reset statement closes all active files opened by the Open statement and writes the contents of all file buffers to disk.

This example uses the Reset statement to close all open files and write the contents of all file buffers to disk. Note the use of the Variant variable as both a string and a number.

Dim FileNumber 
For FileNumber = 1 To 5 ' Loop 5 times. 
 ' Open file for output. FileNumber is concatenated into the string 
 ' TEST for the file name, but is a number following a #. 
 Open "TEST" & FileNumber For Output As #FileNumber 
 Write #FileNumber, "Hello World" ' Write data to file. 
Next FileNumber 
Reset ' Close files and write contents 
 ' to disk.
