Are you asking about how to make that particular extension associated with your program, or simply being able to read and write to it?

You can read and write to a file with a custom extension the same way you can read and write to any other file. You just do it.

It's very possible. As this is probably a .NET question judging from your profile (and that I've seen all your posts being moved there in the past), I suggest you utilize the search feature in that area to see if this is already covered there. Plus, Google is always an option.

Yes, you are using Visual Basic.NET. DIC has a specific forum devoted to it called "VB.NET". Next time you have a question, post in that forum instead and you'll get your solutions much quicker.
