Hello!
   I need to write in a text file in Visual Basic 6 some text lines but without the vbCrLf automatically inserted at the end of the line. If i use the following code:
   
   Open App.Path & "\TextFile.txt" For Output As #1
        Print #1, "Some text"
    Close #1

  this automatically inserts me an vbCrLf (Enter key) at the end of every line. I need to be able to choose if i want to insert Chr(13) or Chr(10) or both in a construction like this:
        Print #1, "Some text" & Chr(13)

    How can i do this?

 Thank you!

Hello Cristi_E,

I think write supports this but afaik appends quote marks to strings - don't know if this is a problem of itself for you?

Regards,
Chris

afaik - as far as I know

Print #1, "Some text"
results in:
Some Text
with the CR LF being written to stream #1

Write #1, "Some text"
results in:
"Some Text"
 being written to stream #1 ... but no CR LF

Put a semi-colon after the text.
Dim f As Integer
f = FreeFile
Open "C:\NoVbCr.txt" For Output As #f
    Print #f, "Text1" & vbCr;
    Print #f, "Text2" & vbCr;
Close #f
