I'm not sure this is really a programming issue, but I will give it a try here. I'm outputting data formatted kind of like a table to a file. When opened with notepad, the data is all on one line and where there should be a new line a block character is present (showing that it's an unrecognized character or something). When opened with wordpad, it displays just fine. Would there be something wrong in my code? I'm simply output '\n' when i want a new line.
