I am trying to create a sub to write fixed lenght to cvs file. Could you help? Max lenght per line is 500.

    Public Sub ExportOrderData()
        Using MyFile1 As New StreamWriter("C:\Temp\MyFile.csv")
         
           position 10 - 15 = write Order #
           position 17 - 25 = write Description
           position 30 - 100 = write Address  

           max size per line is 150


        End Using
    End Sub

Hi  jagr12;

You can use the String.Format Method which will allow you to give field a width value for each specific line position, spaces between columns, how to justify the data in the field and many other options, Have a look at the Microsoft documentation String.Format Method.
