SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(“ddMMyyyy_HHmmSS”); String strCurrDate = formatter.format(new java.util.Date()); String strfileNm = “Cust_Advice_” + strCurrDate + “.txt”; String strFileGenLoc = strFileLocation + “/” + strfileNm; String strQuery=”select name, age, data from basetable”; try { stmt = conn.createStatement(); System.out.println(“Query is -> ” + strQuery); rs = stmt.executeQuery(strQuery); File f = new File(strFileGenLoc); OutputStream os = (OutputStream)new FileOutputStream(f); String encoding = “UTF8”; OutputStreamWriter osw = new OutputStreamWriter(os, encoding); BufferedWriter bw = new BufferedWriter(osw); while (rs.next() ) { bw.write(rs.getString(1)==null? “”:rs.getString(1)); bw.write(” “); bw.write(rs.getString(2)==null? “”:rs.getString(2)); bw.write(” “); } bw.flush(); bw.close(); } catch (Exception e) { System.out.println( “Exception occured while getting resultset by the query”); e.printStackTrace(); } finally { try { if (conn != null) { System.out.println(“Closing the connection” + conn); conn.close(); } } catch (SQLException e) { System.out.println( “Exception occured while closing the connection”); e.printStackTrace(); } } return objArrayListValue; }

i need “one tab space” in between each column(while writing to text file). like

manu 25 data1 manc 35 data3

in my code i use bw.write(” “) for creating space between each column. how to use “one tab space” in that place instead of giving “space”.
