Hello rgb192,

I think you can do it as following..

file_put_contents("file.txt", implode(" ",$field ) . $CSV_separator, FILE_APPEND);

Thanks.

Use the output control.
http://us.php.net/manual/en/ref.outcontrol.php

ob_start();
echo [whatever]
$string = ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();

file_put_contents(("file.txt", $string, FILE_APPEND);

Of course it will work.  The buffers are stackable.  Just put the ob_start() and ob_get... in the right places.
