Problem Reading Files in QuickBasic

Problem Reading Files in QuickBasic

Problem Reading Files in QuickBasic

ok ive created a database to store all my customers and ive gotten my program to write the data to files successfully, but when i try to get the program to read them back to me, it only displays the first line of the file. i would like it to display the entire file. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the code im using to get the program to read it back to me:

OPEN "file.ext" FOR INPUT AS #1
INPUT #1, info$
PRINT info$

RE: Problem Reading Files in QuickBasic

Nevermind with almost 2 more hours of messing with the code, i finally got it to work. I had to change the code to this:

OPEN "file.ext" FOR INPUT AS #1
   INPUT #1, info$
   PRINT info$
