Control the text file pointer

We could have faced a problem like getting back the reading location of a opened text file to re-read or re-search the file from beginning ...
We don't have a right approach to do this in VBScript using FileSystemObject without close and reopening the file. But we could do using STREAM object without reopen ...

Dim myFileStream
Set myFileStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
myFileStream.CharSet = "UTF-8"
myFileStream.LineSeparator = 13

msgbox myFileStream.ReadText(-2) 'Returns first line

myFileStream.Position = 0
msgbox myFileStream.ReadText(-2) 'returns first line again as expected
