Syntax:

Write Statement diagram


Write [#fileNum] {,|;} expression [, …]

Parameters:

fileNum: Any numeric expression that contains the file number that was set by the Open statement for the respective file.

expression list: Variables or expressions that you want to enter in a file, separated by commas.

If the expression list is omitted, the \<emph\>Write#\</emph\> statement appends an empty line to the file.

To add an expression list to a new or an existing file, the file must be opened in the \<emph\>Output\</emph\> or \<emph\>Append\</emph\> mode.

The \<emph\>Write#\</emph\> statement enters data that is enclosed by quotation marks and separated by commas into a file. You do not need to use delimiters in the list. The end of a file created with the \<emph\>Write#\</emph\> statement is indicated by a line end symbol.

Each Write statement outputs a line end symbol as last entry.

Numbers with decimal delimiters are converted according to the locale settings.

Example:


Sub ExampleWrite
    Dim iCount As Integer
    Dim sValue As String
    iCount = Freefile
    Open "C:\data.txt" For Output As iCount
    sValue = "Hamburg"
    Write #iCount,sValue,200
    sValue = "New York"
    Write #iCount,sValue,300
    sValue = "Miami"
    Write #iCount,sValue,450
    Close #iCount
End Sub
