I guess you put it in the message box or something?

Check the name of the file mfile. If you are getting empty it might
be because the file is empty!
Just grasping at straws: You are opening for update. Try just
opening for read. I know you already checked permission... That
might also catch nonexisting files.
As a test, after closing, see what URL file: comes up with.
Make sure mfile is not a name of a device.
