Hi,
I am trying to write a string to a text file.  I am using:
WriteLine(1, strgName)
Is there another way to write a string to a text file without the parenthesis showing?
Each strgName is supposed represent a data record, so I would to ensure a CR is present also.
Any help would be appreciated.

WriteLine 1, strgName

As long as you have a space after the WriteLine you should be fine.

If you want CR before the 1 and or anything else then just add it in.

Im assuming that the strgName is a variable which you have not shown us and that 1 is a numerical value, if you want the 1 to be a string then just put "" around it ie "1"

As for the CR, I think you will have to have quotes around that since it is a string.

Maybe you can show us how you want this to be displayed when it is written to the text file and also what strgName is etc

This will write an array as text lines to a file:

Sub WriteFile(strArray() As String)
    Dim f As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
   
    f = FreeFile
    Open "C:\MyPath\MyFile.txt" For Output As #f
        For i = 0 To UBound(strArray)
            Print #f, strArray(i)
        Next i
    Close #f
End Sub
