Hi,

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim a(10) As Integer
    Dim s(10) As String
   
    Dim filename As String
   
    filename = App.Path & "\file.txt"
   
    For i = 1 To 10
        a(i) = i
        s(i) = Mid(Str(a(i)), 2)
    Next i
   
    Open filename For Output As #1
   
    For i = 1 To 10
        Write #1, s(i);
    Next i
   
    Close #1
End Sub

The point is using ; after  write #1  statement to be in one line.

   For i = 1 To 10
        If i <> 10 Then
            Write #1, s(i);
        Else
            Write #1, s(i)
        End If
    Next i

Or it is better:

    For i = 1 To 9
        Write #1, s(i);
    Next i
    Write #1, s(i)
