That should work for you
<?php
$string = "test";
for($i=1;$i<=3;$i++)
{
	$fp = fopen($string.$i.'.txt', 'w');
	$headertofile = array ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd');
	$fileheader = implode("|",$headertofile); 
	fwrite($fp, $fileheader . "\r\n");
	fclose($fp);
}
?>

Hi,

You are assigning $fp to all the fopens, and the $fp = fopen('c:\\'.$file3.'.txt', 'w');
is the last one, so its the one being used.

Try assigning different name variable $fp, $fp_a, $fp_2.

That might work.

How about if
**config.php**
$file1 = 'test1';
 $file2 = 'test2';
 $file3 = 'test3';
 $fp = fopen('c:\\'.$file1.'.txt', 'w');
 $fp = fopen('c:\\'.$file2.'.txt', 'w');
 $fp = fopen('c:\\'.$file3.'.txt', 'w');

if from config file

i use include to call config.php

include(config.php)
$headertofile = array ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd');
$fileheader = implode("|",$headertofile);
fwrite($fp, $fileheader . "\r\n");
fclose($fp);
how?

you may use file_put_contents (http://hu2.php.net/file_put_contents) instead, if you use PHP5.

file_put_contents ( 'a.txt' , 'a' );
file_put_contents ( 'b.txt' , 'b' );
file_put_contents ( 'c.txt' , 'c' );

what happen if i want to add more that 100 different file name?
