I have the code above, it suppose to split the the file if it has more than one payor "N1" and cut the top and the body to put them in a new file. However , whenever I run this code, the file that contains more than one payor, deletes all its contents and just writes "Array", i dont see any issue however, any ideas?

This is how you are filling $new_files
$new_files[] = array(
  'name' => $filename,
'content' => $header."\n".$block."\n".$footer
);

Open in new window

This is how you are writing to the file
foreach($new_files as $new_file) {
  //create file
  $myfile = fopen("$file", "x");

  //put contents in the file
  //$txt = $new_file; 
  fwrite($myfile, "$new_file");

  //close the file
  fclose($myfile);
}

Open in new window

$new_file is an array - you want the 'content' element of the array so you probably want to be doing this

fwrite($myfile, "{$new_file['content']}");

I changed the fwrite statement, however I still got the same output
"Array"

Please don't say you changed something - post the code of what you did we need to see what you are doing to make a comment.

The code I posted should work - but you have two variables that are almost identical in spelling
$new_files
$new_file

Chances are you used the wrong one.

Please post the code you say is not working.

This is the code that I edited and still didnt work. And in my foreach I did $new_files as $new_file, so Im not mistaken.

No in my foreach, $new_files as $new_file,so $new_file is correct

Are you sure it does not work?

Can you add the following on line 73 and post the output

echo "<pre>" . print_r($new_files, true) . "</pre>";

This expert suggested creating a Gigs project.
Julian may want to see the code, but I prefer to see your test data set with before and after examples, like what you posted in this question.  Once we have that we can almost always help you with the code.  Please show us your test data, thanks.

If you're new to PHP and want to learn the language, this article can help you get a good footing.  

You might also consider adding this request into E-E Gigs, where you can get detailed, hands-on professional help as your requirements evolve.

You can remove that line - it was only for debugging purposes.

As for why the block does not print - I don't know - I would approach whoever wrote the code to do the parsing of the file. This question was about the unwanted output.
