Problem:
(1:) Type txtFirstName.Text = Peter, text file show: "Peter"
Read from text file and show : txtMsg.Text = Peter
..It is OK no problem.
(2:) When type: Peter into text file and read from the text file,
-------
the txtMsg.Text = Peter ....this is also normal....

BUT when I type: Peter love IP "10.11.12.13" Or Peter Love IP,
10.12.13.14 on text file, read from text file , the txtMsg.text ONLY
show: Peter love IP (the text behind the " and ,is not able to show
on the text box).

Question: Can I read the word or letter after the " and , from the
text box and show onto the text box without using the open and close
parentesis ???

@@@@@@@
(3) Dim strIP as String
strIP = "10.12.13.14"
txtMsg.Text = "I Love You""" & strIP &"""very much."
The file shown: "I Love You""10.12.13.14""very much."
Q: Can I write ONLY: I Love You"10.12.13.14"very much.(without "
and ") to the text file??
@@@@@@@

I created a userform with a textbox called txtMsg and a Read button
and copied your code  into the click event for the button.
I then created the a.txt file  and tested your code
and it worked fine!!! Peter loves IP "10.11.12.13"
showed in the text  box.

Try entering a longer string like: Peter loves all IP regardless of
location
and try it.
Does it truncate?
Maybe the problem  is with the definition of the textbox on the userform.
Is there a MaxLength value set?
