I want to be able to click a button that takes all items and subitems in a listview and copies them to a comma delimited textfile. I have absolutely no idea how to do this so would appreciate any help with this.

textfile path c:\ListView
textfile name: lstMenu.txt

the listview name is lstMenu

item column name: PooX
subItem1 column name: Value
subitem 2 column name: Code 1
subItem 3 column name: Code 2

I do not need the column header names copied just the contents of the listview. I row of listview = 1 row of comma delimited text

Thanks

Here it is

    Private Sub Button1_Click_2(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim s As String = "C:\ListView\lstMenu.txt"

        Dim fs As IO.FileStream

        If IO.File.Exists(s) Then
            fs = New IO.FileStream(s, IO.FileMode.Append)
        Else
            fs = New IO.FileStream(s, IO.FileMode.CreateNew)
        End If

        Dim f As New IO.StreamWriter(fs)
        For Each i As ListViewItem In lstMenu.Items
            f.WriteLine(i.SubItems(0).Text & "," & i.SubItems(1).Text & "," & i.SubItems(2).Text)
        Next

        f.Close()

    End Sub

 Make sure you created folder 'ListView'

---

 If you want to create folder in runtime u can use this code

          If Not Directory.Exists("C:\LisView") Then
                Directory.CreateDirectory("C:\LisView")
            End If
