Get# and Put# statements are converted to VB.NET as invocations to FileGet6 and FilePut6 methods, respectively. These methods enhance the FileGet and FilePut methods in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll with the support for variants, arrays, and most other data types that VB.NET doesn’t support correctly.
Unfortunately, not all data types can be processed correctly. This is the list of features that VB Migration Partner doesn’t handle correctly:
- Variant elements in UDTs aren’t handled correctly and prevent the entire UDT from being written to and read from file.
- Dynamic arrays in UDTs aren’t handled correctly and prevent the entire UDT from being written to and read from file.
- FileGet6 can’t read arrays that haven’t been unitialized in code or arrays that contain a number of elements that is different from the length stored in the file.
