The code above, I want it to read a file and split it into to, it splits them but doesn't create a file for each and i keep getting this warning: Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /script2.php on line 62 Notice: Undefined offset: 2 in /script2.php on line 62
Im not sure why, also the N1* part shows the whole thing in one file and none of it in the second (i see this through my browser)

What does PHP do with this?  Here's an explanation.

1. PHP will identify the contents of the $line variable
2. PHP will identify the contents of the $count variable
3. PHP will locate the $payor_blocks variable and ensure that it is an array
4. PHP will try to use  the $count variable to locate an element in the array; this will fail because there is nothing in $payor_blocks that can be indexed by $count
5. PHP will take no further action, except to raise a Notice message
Ray PaseurCommented:
Undefined offset  is like "undefined variable" in that it means the array does not contain any information at the key named in the message.

This could not have occurred on line 62 in the code snippet posted above because that line does not contain an array reference.  When you post code here at E-E, please post the complete code snippet, so we can see how the line numbers in the code and the line numbers in the error messages are related!

Okay, this is the line that is line 62
$payor_blocks[$count] .= $line;

Which is line 56 in my snippet code
