Thanks guys.

In the end I used the following


        mySqlDataAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "Tags")
        For Each myDataRow In myDataSet.Tables("Tags").Rows
            strText = myDataRow("TagId") & ", " & myDataRow("TagDesc") & vbCrLf
            My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(strFileName, strText, True)
        Next myDataRow
