If you only want to delete some records from the file, consider loading them into your ListView, removing the listview items you don't need, then write the listview data back to the file...

Hope this helps

I see you have the contents of the text file in the array arrlines.
Then, guess that you have the value you want to delete in the valueToDel variable:

        Dim c As Integer = 0
        Dim valueToDelete As String = "some string"
        Dim arrLinesTemp() As String
        Dim arrLines() As String = IO.File.ReadAllLines("c:\Records.txt")

        ' Make a copy of the original array avoiding the value
        ' you want to delete
        For x As Integer = 0 To UBound(arrLines)
            If arrLines(x) <> valueToDelete Then
                arrLinesTemp(c) = arrLines(x)
                c += 1
            End If
        Next x

        ' Clear the original array
        Array.Clear(arrLines, 0, UBound(arrLines))

        ' Restore the values left in the original array
        Array.Copy(arrLinesTemp, arrLines, UBound(arrLinesTemp))

I am sure that there are better ways to do this. But it just works! :D
