    Default What is wrong with my code?

    I am trying to print this to a file:

            try {
     
            PrintWriter outfile = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter("CD.txt", true));
            outfile.println(title+","+singer+","+price+","+Category+","+discount + ",");
     
         for(int t=0;t<NumOfTracks;t++){
           Tracks[t]=(Newtrack);
           duration[t]=(Newtime);
           outfile.println(Tracks[t] + "," + duration[t]+ ",");
                t++;
            }
            outfile.close();
            }

    Whenever i print it to the file, i get
    title,singer,price,category,discount,track1,time1
    title,singer,price,category,discount,track2,time2

    I want it to be like this
    title,singer,price,category,discount,track1,time1, track2,time2.

    Why is it printing the same thing again and writting the track2 and time2 to it?

    Thank you

    Thumbs up Re: What is wrong with my code?

    outfile.println(title+","+singer+","+price+","+Cat egory+","+discount + ",");

    outfile.println(Tracks[t] + "," + duration[t]+ ",");

    try this

    use print instead of println

    this is just an confusing attempt.because anyhow if the above line is not in the loop ,then how it can be written twice.
    Thanks and Regards

    Hi friend,

    The variable 't' is incremented inside the 'for' loop. why? I'm just confused.
