When you check the example in the help file you will see that you need to include the following line:

#include <FileConstants.au3>

I figured it out

I need to remove an include libray   #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>  and use  #include <file.au3>

also the text file I named test.txt   but   its real name was test.txt.txt   as I didnt have the windows explorer option show extensions, that was a tricky one to spot.

Removing #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>  didn't solve your problem. It simply removed a library which you didn't use in your script.
#include <file.au3> or #include <FileConstants.au3> solved your problem :)
