I'm having a little difficulty accessing extended file names. I'm using TP 5.5, and I'm getting errors out the ying-yang while trying to create and write to a file that uses the extended file name convention. I think I'm going to scrap what I have and start from the beginning on this part of the program. Any suggestions on a way to insure extended file names will be acceptable to the compiler and the program also not generate runtime errors? Thank's in advance....
