Hi I'm using streamwriter to write from a table to a csv file in a script task. I use a comma, stored as a variable as the delimiter. The problem is that a comma is written as the last character of each line and I would like to remove this. How could I do this?
My code is below

Many thanks

 Dim sw As StreamWriter = Nothing

        sw = New StreamWriter(filePath, False)

        ' write column headers 

        For i = 0 To dt.Columns.Count - 1

            sw.Write(dt.Columns(i).ToString() & Dts.Variables("User::VarDelimeter").Value.ToString())



  ' write data 

        For Each row As DataRow In dt.Rows
            Dim array As Object() = row.ItemArray

            For i = 0 To array.Length - 2

                sw.Write(array(i).ToString() & Dts.Variables("User::VarDelimeter").Value.ToString())
