    Hey all,
    What wrong with the following syntax?
    def save_file(sitelist,filename):
        out_file = open(filename,"w")
        for site in sitelist.keys():

  sitelist[site][1]"\n" is not valid. I think you want sitelist[site][1] + "\n"


  You can simplify things by using items():
   for key, value in sitelist.items():
       out_file.write(key +","+value[0] +","+value[1]+"\n")

  % formatting can make it even nicer:
       out_file.write("%s,%s,%s\n" % (key, value[0], value[1])

    It highlighted the last " if that will help any.
    I can't show you the error due to the fact that the error appeared in a separate box, instead of in the IDLE window.
    If you need the rest of the code, just ask. It ran perfect before I added file I/O.
    Thanks in advance,

  Just out of curiosity, would you explain "Crew, Camrose McDonalds and owner/operator of Woffee"
