The  attached code  is used to generate a text file. However when the text file is generated It shows the header (field names) which I dont want. How can I create this text file without showing the header.

Thanks techChallenger1. If you read my question very well, my problem is not creating the text file. I was able to create it successfully. My problem is getting rid of the column names that appear on the first line.

public void Write(DataTable dt, string filePath)
        {
            int i = 0;
            StreamWriter sw = null;
            try
            {
                sw = new StreamWriter(filePath, false);
                foreach (DataRow row in dt.Rows)
                {
                    object[] array = row.ItemArray;
                    for (i = 0; i < array.Length - 1; i++)
                    {
                        sw.Write(array[i].ToString());
                        sw.Write(","); //lets add comma after every column value
                    }

                    sw.WriteLine(); //lets add new line after every row
                }
                sw.Close();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)

                MessageBox.Show("Invalid Operation : \n" + ex.ToString(), "Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);
            }
