Why? Here's what I would do: put the data from form 1 in a table and read from that table from form 2. No need to fiddle with text files.

Thanks for your reply but no thanks because I need to read a text file when I open one of my form to do some user configuration.

Any ways I have found a way. For help of others read about TEXT_IO PACKAGE.
