isolation,

I see the problem - using the 2 parameter, you have overwritten the existing contents as you open the file so FileGetSize returns 0 until you close it again.

I assume FileGetSize requires the file to be closed to get the size. But I am sure one of the gurus will come up with a work around if you are patient.

This is not the problem

With an handle FileGetSize sets @error=1

The problem is that I haven't the file name....

FileGetSize does not accept an handle. You must give it a file name.

How else do you open the file without a name?
