                    While myreader.Read()
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetDecimal(0).ToString + ",")
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetValue(1) + ",")
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetString(2) + ",")
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetString(3) + ",")
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetString(4) + ",")
                        objwriter.Write(myreader.GetString(5) + ",")
                        objwriter.WriteLine(myreader.GetValue(6) + ",")
                    End While
                    myreader.Close()
                objwriter.Close()
            Catch ex As Exception
                End Try
            Conn.Close()

writeline() will write the data and move to next line
