    Hey Guys,

    How can I save a string (or array) as a comma seperated value? I can read csv files and store the data as a string or an array but when I try to save the data after I have edited it, it looses the csv format and is saved as one long line.

    This is the code I use to read the data:
    Open "c:\XFER\Users\users.csv" For Binary As #1
    strUserList = Input(LOF(1), #1)

    And this is the code I use to write data:
    Open "c:\XFER\Users\users.csv" For Output As #1
    Write #1, strUpdatedUserList

    Where am I going wrong?

    Found that using Print #1, strUpdatedUserList instead of Write #1, strUpdatedUserList works GREAT!

    use the Scripting.Filesystem Object for your file I/O operations in VB6. it will save you much time. Yes.. I said scripting.. it will still work in VB6..
