Below is code that I use in a macro but one of the users gets a Disk Full error. I marked the line which throws the error. Any ideas on the cause or solution? Thanks!!
Code:
Sub ReplaceTextInFile(SourceFile As String, sText As String, rText As String) 'replaces  with | in text file
Dim TargetFile As String, tLine As String, tString As String
Dim p As Integer, i As Long, F1 As Integer, F2 As Integer
    TargetFile = "RESULT.TMP"
    If Dir(SourceFile) = "" Then Exit Sub
    If Dir(TargetFile) <> "" Then
        On Error Resume Next
        Kill TargetFile
        On Error GoTo 0
        If Dir(TargetFile) <> "" Then
            MsgBox TargetFile & " already open, close and delete / rename the file and try again.", vbCritical
            Exit Sub
        End If
    End If
    F1 = FreeFile
    Open SourceFile For Input As F1
    F2 = FreeFile
    Open TargetFile For Output As F2  '*****ERROR HERE*******
    i = 1 ' line counter
    Application.StatusBar = "Reading data from " & TargetFile & " ..."
    While Not EOF(F1)
        If i Mod 100 = 0 Then Application.StatusBar = "Reading line #" & i & " in " & TargetFile & " ..."
        Line Input #F1, tLine
        If sText <> "" Then
            ReplaceTextInString tLine, sText, rText
        End If
        Print #F2, tLine
        i = i + 1
    Wend
    Application.StatusBar = "Closing files ..."
    Close F1
    Close F2
    Kill SourceFile ' delete original file
    Name TargetFile As SourceFile ' rename temporary file
    Application.StatusBar = False
End Sub
