After Appending A Txt File, The Text File Locks


Recommended Posts

I have a macro that appends to a txt file multiple times. Every once in awhile that txt file locks up and the macro aborts when it trys to append. The only way I can free up that file again is to shut down my PC. Has anybody run into this problem? Any idea why the file is locking up? Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's probably Windows locking the file. You may be writing to it too many times, or trying to append too fast within a short period.


I'd suggest reducing your "Append to Text File" commands. Instead of writing to file every single time, you could append data to a variable first (Append Text String Variable), then later write it to file after say, 10 lines.
