I have an array that I am writing to a file:

Open outputfile For Output As #2

For counter = 1 To Right1
    Print #2, Amount(counter)
Next


I get the text file, but I get a carriage return after each of the items.

Is there a way to do this without the carriage returns?

thanks

each call to the Print command is placed on a new line, but you can do this with one statement in VB6:

Print #2, Join(Amount, " ")

the Join function takes an array and "joins" each element into a single string.  the second parameter passed to the function is the delimiter you wish to place between each array value.

if you put a semicolon at the end of the print statement it will eliminate the carriage returns:

Open outputfile For Output As #2

For counter = 1 To Right1
   Print #2, Amount(counter);
Next
