Convert array to string and write to csv file

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I am looking to write a MySQL query to a csv file.

At the minute I:

check for the original file, and delete it;
create a new (blank) file;
run the MySQL query and pass it into an array;
write it to the new file;

But it is missing something, as it only writes the first line from the query.

my code so far is:

Code: <?php

//Delete Original File

//Set variables
$uName = "root";
$pWord = "password";
$host = "localhost";

$Query = "[i]...MySQL query...[/i]";

$Filename = str_replace('.php', '', basename("Report")) . '_' . date("Ymdhis") . '.csv';

$ReportFiles = "c:ReportFiles\";

$Newfile = $ReportFiles.$Filename;

$cr = "n";

//Create a new (empty) file
echo exec("<nul (set/p z=) > "$Newfile"");

//Run MySQL Query
$connection = mysql_connect($host, $uName, $pWord) ;
mysql_select_db("dbName", $connection) ;
$result = mysql_query ($Query, $connection);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_NUM))
$String = implode(",",$row);

//Open file and save contents of query to that file
$fp = fopen($Newfile,"a");
echo "File saved successfully";
} else {
echo "Error saving file!";
