Dim Conn As New OleDbConnection(Connect)
            Dim myselect As New OleDbCommand()
            myselect.Connection = Conn

Dim myreader As OleDbDataReader
            Dim fileName As String = MapPath("temp.txt")
            Dim objwriter As StreamWriter
            Try
                objwriter = File.CreateText(fileName)
                Conn.Open()
                myselect.CommandText = <select statement>
myreader = myselect.ExecuteReader()
                    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
