(Code1 Question) Am using   file.write line   to create row header to output results of sql query to  csv file.
 In the code,  I need to separate the line for readability. Or can I use a str variable instead? How would I do that?

(Code2 Question) Am using     SQL=SQL &    to separate sql query in VBScript. Can I use a str variable instead? How would I do that?

'Code1 Sample:
file.WriteLine ""CLASS"",""SCHOOLNUM"",""SCHLNAME"",""SECTION"",""COURSE"",""TITLE"" "
'would like to separate it: into 2 lines or use a variable. (such as strheader=?)
 
'Code2 Sample:
SQL="select blah, blah, blah, blah....."
SQL=SQL & "blah, blah, blah....."
Can I use  a variable instead? (such as strsql=?)

First question, to seperate into two lines, can you not just do two write lines?
file.WriteLine ""CLASS"",""SCHOOLNUM"",""SCHLNAME"","
file.WriteLine"SECTION"",""COURSE"",""TITLE"" "


SQL is already a variable!

 
'Code2 Sample:
SQL="select blah, blah, blah, blah....."
SQL=SQL & "blah, blah, blah....."
Can I use  a variable instead? (such as strsql=?)

(1) Will separating into file.writeline 2x keep the entire row intact in the file?

(2) I understand about #2, but can't I declare
strsql="Select blah, blah, blah from table"    
 then use the strsql instead of all the lines of SQL=SQL& I would need with a big query?

Be patient with me; I'm a novice in this area. Thanks

(1) Ok, you mean in code you want to write in two lines but show as one line when written?

use .write instead of .writeline

file.write

then end with

file.writeline

(2) Do you mean you want to append a string?

String concatenation can be done using & as you have done

strsql = "xxxx"
strsql = strsql & "yyyy"


Regarding (1)

And example

I use chr(34) to write a double quote

f.Write chr(34) & "CLASS" & chr(34) & "," & chr(34) & "SCHOOLNUM" & chr(34) & "," & 

chr(34)
f.write "SCHLNAME" & chr(34) & "," & "SECTION" & chr(34) & "," & chr(34)
f.writeline "COURSE" & chr(34) & "," & chr(34) & "TITLE"
