Writing to TEXT File

I am relearning BASIC and have been looking for Windows #10 program such as this for year. When I write to a TEXT file the output is limited to 80 characters? If the output is > 80 character the extra are on the next line? Any thoughts?

Hi smfoos,

Just before you print to the text file (say it's opened as #3) , put the statement:

SET #3: margin maxnum

Then any length of line will be accepted.

Hope this helps.
