well, what's in tFilename?

Anyway, at least if tFilename is NOT empty then

> put "c:/MyFolder/MyFile.Txt" after tFilename

will produce probably something like:

  "c:/MyFolderc:/MyFolder/MyFile.Txt"

which is definitvely wrong! ;-)

What exactly do you mean by

???

Check tFilename before appending anything to it...

Hope that helps...
