How to remove double-quotes when writing to a text file?

Hi all,

I have a program to write the content of a document to a text file when the user clicks on a button.

Here is a part of the program:

fileNum = Freefile()
fileName = "C:\Sample.txt"
Open fileName For Output As fileNum
tmpContent = doc.P1(0) +"|"+ doc.T1(0) +"|"+ doc.DSO1(0) +"|"+ doc.DO1(0) +"|"+ doc.PS1(0) +"|"+ doc.PSG1(0) +"|"+ _
doc.RS1(0) +"|"+ doc.PO1(0) +"|"+ doc.POG1(0) +"|"+ doc.RO1(0) +"|"+ doc.S1(0) +"|"+ doc.OI1(0) +"|"+ doc.CL(0)
Write #fileNum, tmpContent
Close fileNum

However, after writing to the text file, the content in the text file is wrapped by "double-quotes", eg. "abc|def|ghi|jkl|mno|pqr".
How can I remove the double-quotes?

Thanks very much in advance!

Try opening the file for BINARY access.

Also, declare tmpContent as String explicitly.

Hi jjperez2,

Replace the "WRITE" statement with a "PRINT" statement, like so:

Print #fileNum, tmpContent

The WRITE statment always uses delimiters:
Write # statement  

Writes data to a sequential text file with delimiting characters.

Numeric      Omits leading and trailing spaces.
String      Encloses all strings in double quotation marks. Pads fixed-length strings with spaces as needed.



Best regards,
qwaletee
