    Basically I try to use the shell command to
    sort a simple text file and generate another file.

    My visual basic code is following:

    Private sub Command1_click( )
    Dim strCommand as string
    Dim sngMark as single

    StrCommand=app.path & “\sortSum.bat”

    Shell strCommand, vbMinimizedNoFocus

    SngMark=timer
    Do
    DoEvents
    Loop until timer-sngMark>2
    End sub

    The batch file sortSum.bat is following:
    C:\winnt\system32\sort <c:\somefile> c:\outputFile
    (or sort <c:\somefile> c:\outputFile)

    somefile is just a simple text file I want to be sorted.

    The problem is that there is no outputfile be generated after
    Execute the VB program. But if I execute the batch file (sortsum.bat) in the
    Dos system, there is outputfile being generated. I also used the CreateProcess function
    And everything went well and just no file being created.

    does anybody know why? I have been burdened
    with this problem for several days. Please heellp.

    Thanks a lot.

    You should look up info on the FileSystemObject Object.
