robjay,

This procedure reads rows 1-3, columns 1-5 from Sheet1 and writes to c:\test\test.txt

Sub ReadAndWrite()
  Dim ws As Worksheet
  Dim r As Long
  Dim c As Long
  Dim f As Integer
 
  Set ws = Sheets("Sheet1")
 
  f = FreeFile
  Open "c:\test\test.txt" For Output As f
 
  For r = 1 To 3
    For c = 1 To 5
      Print #f, ws.Cells(r, c),
    Next c
    Print #f,
  Next r
 
  Close f
End Sub
