File system object is to create a file where you can store your informations and also read. Have a look to my exemple I think you can understand it.

SystemUtil.Run "iexplore.exe","","C:Documents and Settingsuser18Desktop",""
Browser("Google").Page("Google").Link("Gmail").Click
Browser("Google").Page("Gmail: Email from Google").Sync
Dim x,y
Set x = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set y = x.Createtextfile("d:testfile.xls",true)
If Browser("Google").Page("Gmail: Email from Google").Exist Then
y.writeline("step1 login details is pass")
else
y.writeline("step1 login details is fail")
End If
Browser("Google").Close

Thanks and regards,

File System is used to create file through scripting.

We can read, write and save data in txt file and use it after wards during testing.

Here is example of creating txt file through FSO

   Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
   Dim fso, MyFile
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile("c:testfile.txt", ForWriting, True)
   MyFile.WriteLine "Hello world!"
   MyFile.WriteLine "The quick brown fox"
   MyFile.Close
   Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile("c:testfile.txt", ForReading)
   ReadLineTextFile = MyFile.ReadLine    ' Returns "Hello world!"

It will create testfile.txt and enter "This is a test" in that text file.

You can later read that line "This is a test" from this file while using

MyFile.ReadLine

We can save variables data during testing and then use that data in future instances of testing and then delete that file.

This code works fine, it prints line by line in msgbox

Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
Dim fso, MyFile,strNextLine
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile("h:testfile.txt", ForWriting, True)
MyFile.WriteLine "Hello world!"
MyFile.WriteLine "The quick brown fox"
MyFile.Close
Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile("h:testfile.txt", ForReading)

Do Until MyFile.AtEndOfStream
strNextLine=MyFile.Readline
MsgBox strNextLine
Loop

Bye
