Write to text file with columns?

I need to write a program that writes strings and integers to a text file in 2 columns.   I need to be able to append to different columns whenever I need to.  I havnt had to write to a file in awhile so if you could include an example that would be great too. Thanks.

The basic code to output in columns is something like this:

    std::ofstream outFile;
    outFile.open("<file name>");
    // assume string is in 'std::string txt;' and int is 'int intVal;'
    // this will put the string in a 10 character column and the integer in a 7 character column.
    outFile << std::setw(10) << txt.c_str() << std::setw(7) << int << std::endl;


What do you mean by "append to different columns whenever I need to"?
