So I am not getting the data from text1 to load properly(I would assume text2 is the same). If I step through it the variables load and then once it reaches Dim A() etc. it gives the "path's format is not supported" error. I have changed up how i'm getting data from the data source from initially getting the text files from OpenFileDialog, to hard coding, to what is below. I am pretty new to VB.net and I am sure it is something pretty basic but I dont know enough to know what that is. Also, I initially was going to use Streamreader but when reading more about what I wanted to do ReadAllLines seemed more appropriate.
Dim Master As String = "C:\work\test1.txt" Dim NewFile As String = "C:\work\test2.txt" Dim A() As String = IO.File.ReadAllLines(Master) Dim B() As String = IO.File.ReadAllLines(NewFile)
