Write Method

Writes binary data to a Stream object.


Stream.Write Buffer  


A Variant that contains an array of bytes to be written.


Specified bytes are written to the Stream object without any intervening spaces between each byte.

The current Position is set to the byte following the written data. The Write method does not truncate the rest of the data in a stream. If you want to truncate these bytes, call SetEOS.

If you write past the current EOS position, the Size of the Stream will be increased to contain any new bytes, and EOS will move to the new last byte in the Stream.


The Write method is used with binary streams (Type is adTypeBinary). For text streams (Type is adTypeText), use WriteText.
