hmmm but how can i make it so it only shos what comes after fn: not inl;uding fn:?

Grretings:
Just remove that part from the string:

s.Remove(0,3);

the remove method takes two parameter, the index where you want to start removing and length you wish to remove

Hi

Complete code to reading last line in text file

StreamReader streamReader = new StreamReader("HereWillBeYourTextFilePath");
    ArrayList lines = new ArrayList();

    string line;

    while ((line = streamReader.ReadLine()) != null)
    {
        lines.Add(line);
    }
    streamReader.Close();

    if (lines.Count > 0)
    {
        Response.Write(lines[lines.Count - 1].ToString());
    }
