What error does FSCreateFileUnicode return when it doesn't work?

Actually it shows dup error whcih shows the file exits ... so there is function which could create the file when the program starts and keeps on appending it .

thanks in advnace

That doesn't make sense.

If the file exists, then there's no need to create it. Simply open it for writing and append your data.

If the file doesn't exist, then create it before opening it.

There are functions for opening existing files for writing. Read the FileManager docs. Look for FSOpenFork.

You can also use the C standard I/O function fopen(), and it will handle creation, appending, etc. when given the right parameters.
