Storages & Files CreateFile
CreateFile method 

Creates a new file in the file system and returns SFStream object for it.


Set strm = object.CreateFile(name [,SF_Flags])


name - The name of the file to be created. Usually this is full path name.

SF_Flags - the standard create/open flags


Set sf = Server.CreateObject("newObjects.utilctls.SFMain")
Set file = sf.CreateFile("C:\Directory\afile.ext")
' Write some text in the file
file.WriteText "Some text",1


This is a "fast way" to create a file. Files also can be created by using the CreateStream method of SFStorage objects attached to file system directories. Applications that work with a few files only will usually prefer the SFMain.CreateFile method but applications that need the benefits of the abstract storage-file architecture will prefer the SFStorage's method.

Applies to: SFMain object
