If I process in blocks of less than 150 the same file opens without

ideas of how to avoid the issue?

Post the code that's giving you trouble.

I'm not sure if you're serious, or trolling the troll.

Thanks for your reply. I am serious but I dont see the benefit of posting a large amount of code most of which is irrelevant. The bits that open and close the files are standard and work most of the time. However I suspect that a buffer is getting filled, or something. I just wondered if anyone had seen anything similar before.
