Load a text file contents in a macro

Hi,

I would like to load a txt file contents (abc.txt) in a defined temp macro and then display it?

How can this be done.. I tried to use Application.load function without any success.

Just a suggestion, your help file is very unconventional, its hard to find anything and understand it in a shorter time..

if you could make your help file similar to micosoft (listing apis with examples etc, this would be really helpfule, and would be easy for VBLD user to find answers.

Though I rate your web support as staright *****(5 starts).

Thanks for your help.

Use a Set Macro step with a value of

[vbld_GetFileContents("c:\path\to\file.ext")]
