Public av1 As Short
Public a As String

a1 = InputBox(a)
gg1 = Val(a1)
a1 = InputBox(a)
gg2 = Val(a1)
a1 = InputBox(a)
gg3 = Val(a1)
t1 = gg1 + gg2 + gg3
gg4 = 3
av1 = t1 / gg4

FileOpen(1, "c:\bowling.txt", OpenMode.Random)
Catch ex As Exception
FileOpen(1, "c:\bowling.txt", OpenMode.Random)
fjeff.id = 1
fjeff.g1 = gg1
fjeff.g2 = gg2
