I am having to write a formatted string (pipe delimited text) to a text file for EDI to a Legacy system.  My problem is VB puts my string in quotation marks.  How can I write this string to a text file and not have the quotation marks?

Use the Print statement instead of Write statement.

Exactly how are you writing out this text file?  I don't have this problem when using the Print function.

This was actually better than a good answer for me. I am a COBOL programmer that was given the task of writing an application that wrote EDI format to a text file in VB.  So thanks for the help.

Well good luck in learning VB, tchafin.
I have a few COBOL programmers I'm busy training into VB too.  Always good to learn new skills!

Ciao,
