Format printer

Presently if I use the following command the output is a vertical set of numbers. Since I need to review the output of at least 400 numbers, I would like the printer to print for example 100 numbers across before a carriage return

The following prints only one number in each row
For J = 1 to 400
         Printer.print T(J)
Next J

2
8
51
256
36

Would like the following:
2,8,51,256,36..........
with a line feed between each row

I looked in the MSDN reference program and in 4 books, but I have not found the carriage return command to overcome the vertical printing nor how to configure the statement for printing in rows. The output is in real time and I am not reading from a file.

For J = 0 to 41
    for k = 1 to 10
         Printer.print T(J*10 + k); ' note the ";"
    next k
    Printer.print
Next J

For J = 0 to 39, obviously.

In the lines that you presented, you had a comment:
'note the ";"

I do not see it in the code.

Actually I've looked again at your requirement & I realise that I am not  putting the commas in.

For J = 0 to 41
    for k = 1 to 9
         Printer.print T(J*10 + k) & ", ";
    next k
    Printer.print T(J*10 + 10)
Next J
