Use wofstream. CString data is the wide string now.
In MFC there is CFile class. If you use CString, you can use CFile too.

You could use it as below -

log << data.GetString();

This will return you the right string depending on your build settings (unicode/multibyte)

Use basic_ofstream to create the appropriate stream type depending on whether the project is Unicode or MBCS.
void addToFile(CString data,char* file)
{
      if(data == " "){}else{          
      basic_ofstream<TCHAR> log(file,ios::app); // <-- will always be correctly wide or narrow     
      log << data;
      log <<'\0';
      log.close();
        }
}
