GS: AddendumSo I had worked out what I thought was a solution to the text file issue, and I e-mailed DQ VB.Net Advisor Garret Rempel.
When I first started, I would ask Garret to explain things (many things). Now I try to have a solution in mind before I e-mail him, and he lets me know if I'm crazy (sometimes).
So I sent him my fix, and he e-mailed me back this: What you need to do is pass the InvariantCulture to your ToString method call.
I would never have have figured that out, not in a hundred years. Until now, I thought "invariant culture" had something to do with yogurt.
