Dear Tim

Thank you for your reply. Yes, the idea of file object may be necessary.

The csv file that is generated from usvout.prg is perfect. However when the there is date column then encloses in a single ' (I selected opton no 10, which in my case was not needed). So I will have to use file object to remove them.

Further to that I also observed that it created a blank record at cases where date were found blank although other columns had data in them.

Thank and best Regards
