    Could someone, please, show me a sample code to:
    Open a file
    load a specific data entry from the file
    Use the data in an If then statement
    Close file

    Code:
    Dim strinput As String = ""
    Dim split() As String
    'other appropriate dims
    FileOpen(1, Application.StartupPath & "\preferences.txt", OpenMode.Input)
    'find & load "Level = "
    
    Input(1, strinput)
    split = strinput.Split("=")
    
    If (string) = "Level = 3" then
    ~~~bla bla bla
    End if
    FileClose(1)
