  1. DON'T SHOUT AT US. That is rude.
  2. Don't paste code
    Play video
    Please edit your post.
    For large amounts of code, attach it.

  3. string fileName = "C:/abc.txt" ;
    int fileHandle = FileOpen(fileName,FILE_TXT|FILE_SHARE_READ|FILE_SHARE_WRITE);
    Drop the "C:/" Files are only written to the sandbox (C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\<HEXSTRING>\MQL4\Files\abc.txt)

  4. You open the TXT file but don't state whether you are reading or writing it.
  5. Check your return codes Check your return codes and find out why. What are Function return values ? How do I use them ? - MQL4 forum and Common Errors in MQL4 Programs and How to Avoid Them - MQL4 Articles
  6. If you want a CSV file don't specify TXT
  7. If you had used this you would have found examples of append.
  8. If you had RTFM you would have found examples of write
