Hi! Got a simple question. I am trying to print text to file. I am having trouble with this line: out.println("errorMsg += \"'\n''\n'\"+(errCount+1)+\". Name not specified\";"); I keep getting new lines in the text file rather than having \n print out twice. I thought that placing it in single quotes would allow for the character literals to print out rather than the new line. any help would be appreciated.

Rather than use '\n', have you tried \\n? This code:
yields this output: C:\Temp>java Trial errorMsg += "\n\n"+(errCount+1)+". Name not specified"; C:\Temp>

Thanks for the reply. Tried that too. Finally got it to work by using the concat operator to break up the string along the lines of ..+"\\"+"n"+
