Screenbuf clearing Not Working

Screenbuf clearing Not Working

Screenbuf clearing Not Working

I've been using the following forever and now suddenly it's not working. It writes to the the text file but then clears out the text file upon the Screenbuf$ ="" command.

I'm not sure why this suddenly isn't working anymore.

Screenbuf$ = ""
linebuf$ = Space$ (Maxcolumns%)

Looks like:

filenum% = FreeFile
FileName$ = "H:\Testing\Report1.txt"
Open FileName$ For Output as filenum%
Print # filenum%, screenbuf$; Chr$ (12)
Close filenum%

Screenbuf$ = ""
linebuf$ = Space$ (132)

RE: Screenbuf clearing Not Working


Well there was nothing in screenbuf$ when it printed to the file!


glassesJust traded in my old subtlety...
for a NUANCE!tongue
