Well since we can't see your code, no, we can't really explain this.

However, you have an error on line 73 - invalid numeric value. Perhaps this is your line counter. Perhaps this has some bearing on the file or line you are trying to read and that is having a nock on effect.

That's just a mouse move to a location but didn't specify it.

The image is there, forum cut it off.

Some other process must be locking/deleting the file while this script is running.

That's just it the script creates the file, nothing in the script to delete the file, iis still there, it reads the first 2 lines but not the others.

Virus checker - checking the file once it has been created, while the script is then trying to read from it? Can you create a small script to replicate? That we could run here? What happens if you create the file somewhere else other than temp?

Looks simple to me that,
first you open a file named %vSeqNum%.txt
and then you define VseqNum to the value "Sequence no 59749833"
And I guess you do not have a file namend like that and this file he tries to read.

kind regards,
Djek

Give that man a cookie. Such a simple typo, don't code when busy at work.
