This script works perfectly, however, I need to add a header row to the txt output file.  How and where do I do that?

$fh = fopen('ShoppingFeeds/Bing/Bing.txt', 'w');

$sql = 'SELECT * FROM Feeds_BD_Bing';
$pdos = $conn->prepare($sql);

// TRY THE QUERY
try
{
    $pdos->execute();
}
catch(PDOException $exc)
{
    var_dump($exc);
    trigger_error($exc->getMessage(), E_USER_ERROR);
}

// DETERMINE HOW MANY ROWS OF RESULTS WE GOT
$num     = $pdos->rowCount();
$num_fmt = number_format($num);
if (!$num)
{
    echo "<br/>QUERY: $sql ";
    echo "<br/>FOUND NO DATA ";
    echo PHP_EOL;
}
else
{
    echo "<br/>QUERY: $sql ";
    echo "<br/>FOUND $num_fmt ROWS OF DATA ";
    echo PHP_EOL;
}

//ADD HEADER ROW HERE???   PHP echo???

// ITERATE OVER THE RESULTS SET TO SHOW WHAT WE FOUND
while ($row40 = $pdos->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
{
    
	
	foreach ($row40 as $item) {
        fwrite($fh, $item);
        if ($item != $last)
            fwrite($fh, "\t");
    }
    fwrite($fh, "\n");
	
	
	
	
	
}
