I have the following contents in a text  file
5 6
7 8
9 1
2 3
4 6
1 3
4 6
4 7
4 6

the file  is also saves as nos.txt , saved under
"C:\Documents and Settings\Birumanand\Desktop\"

This should work...

Sub Read_write()

Dim iPath As String
Dim iRunner As Long

iPath = "C:\Documents and

X = 0
Open iPath & "nos.txt" For Input As #1

Line Input #1, St

While Not EOF(1)
X = X + 1
Sheets(1).Cells(X, 1) = Left(St, 1)
Sheets(1).Cells(X, 2) = Right(St, 1)

Line Input #1, St

Close #1

Open iPath & "output.txt" For Output As #1

For iRunner = 1 To

Print #1, Trim(Sheets(1).Cells(iRunner, 1) *
Sheets(1).Cells(iRunner, 2))


Close #1

End Sub
