Reading/deleting in a shared textfile (error 55: File already open)

Hi all,

I've developed a program in VB which reads (and deletes) data from a shared
.txt file (it's also used by another application).
When I run the program I get an error nr. 55: File already open.

If anyone has a clue on how to get rid of this error, I hope they would
share the information.

Thanx in advance,
