Shell function, people use it for interactive mode. So writing to one notepad file will continue in operation until you abandon that shell. After that you have to activate the shell for the next notepad. It also will continue in interactive mode until stoped.

Anyhow, without seeing your piece of code, I won't be able to tell you where exactly the bug.

End Sub

The streams are to be closed for further opening. so after

ts2.writeline(vmsg)
you close both by

ts.close and ts2.close

then open it as below.
Dim MyNote1 As String
MyNote1 ="%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe " & (DatFname1 & .....etc. then

Shell MyNote1, vbMaximizedFocus


See, I did not test it. But the above logic is very correct.

Rest is up to you.

Happy Programming

Thnx for your help n respond, but I somehow couldnt get the file open with %SystemRoot%\system32\ , what exactly does it do ? dumping memory ? an error runtime 53 occured when I compile ..... any Idea?

wait now i can run it ..... but the same problem occured .... " continous output " mayb your r right , we cannot stop it without pressing the stop button...
thnx AV Manoharan

I've just received this ... they said it can stop it ...
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Private Declare Function PostMessage Lib "user32" Alias "PostMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Const WM_CLOSE = &H10


Public Function callfun()
Shell "C:\RSSB.exe 1", vbMaximizedFocus
End Function

Public Function clsExe()
Dim winHwnd As Long
Dim RetVal As Long
winHwnd = FindWindow(vbNullString, "RSSB")
If winHwnd <> 0 Then
' MsgBox "calc is closing"

PostMessage winHwnd, WM_CLOSE, 0&, 0&
Else
'MsgBox "The Calculator is not open."
End If

End Function

Do you have any Idea about this?

ok i've used the above function, it can close my notepad but it still couldn't stop the process without pressing the stop button .... just wanna share ..

See coco,
The above program is to call the RSSB.exe program in
interactive mode by the shell, similier to your Notepad
The clsExe function (of course, it is to be called after
some time-delay, otherwise in a flicker both functions
will be executed.), then resize it to 0 length which
automatically finds it place in the taskbar.
But that doesn't solve your problem. Because it will be
alive there until you interactively close it.

If you are more interested in it, I can give you the
logic.

As you know any running program can be killed by the
task manager(ctrl-alt-del). If you can integrate it in
your vb, it is good. I remember studying it in my unix
class about killing a process that you own (or all
process for root), invoking their processor id. Windows
can't be different. Just search in the net. You may find
it. I have not yet, tried it.
