Binary File Access

P: n/a
In VB6 I readed data with this code:
---------------------------------------------------------
Open App.Path & "\SI Map.map" for Binary As #1
Get #1, , lngCount
ReDim SI(lngCount) as MapPoints
Get #1, , SI()
Close #1
---------------------------------------------------------
In VB.NET

Structure MapPoint
Public GridEast As Single
Public GridNorth As Single
End Structure

Dim SouthIsland(2000) As MapPoint
Dim lngCount As Long
Dim ReadString As String

ReadString = CurDir() & "\SI Map.map"
FileOpen(1, ReadString, OpenMode.Binary)

FileGet(1, lngCount)
FileClose(1)

lngCount should = 1747. If I change FileGet(1, lngCount) to FileGet(1,
SouthIsland) I can read all the data but I need
to know the number of records.

Thanks, Simon.
