Stupid thing is killing me.. Problem writing to a text file.
ASP writing to text file script

 4:01 pm on Apr 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I wonder if anyone else has this problem. When I write like over 700 characters to a text file using ASP script, it replaces the first 10 or so characters with this:

Here is my save.asp script:



Dim objFSO, objFile, data

data = Request.Form("data")

Const ForWriting = 2
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("test.txt", ForWriting)
objFile.Write data



and here is my write.asp script:



Dim objFSO, objFile, data, objReadFile, strContents

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile("test.txt")
If objFile.Size > 0 Then
Set objReadFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("test.txt", 1)
strContents = objReadFile.ReadAll
response.write strContents
response.write "The file is empty."
End If


<FORM ACTION="save.asp" METHOD="POST" TITLE="form">

<TEXTAREA NAME="data" ROWS="10" COLS="50">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">



the write.asp shows whats on the page, and has a text area to write and save the new text. Comments or suggestions is greatly apreciated. And if anyone has a script for writing to a text file using .php or perl I would greatly apreciate an idea on how to do that. Thanks.

p.s. the [ code ] thing isn't working so my script is in BOLD.

Try specifying all of the parameters in your openfile method call. Don'y use the defaults.

Try both with ASCII and if you still get the same problem, try with unicode.
