Try the following:

define = OpenWrite[ savefilename,FormatType->OutputForm,
PageWidth->Infinity];
Write[ define, TableForm[ dataset, TableSpacing->{0} ] ] ;
Close[ define];

If the matrix has many columns, the PageWidth->Infinity makes sure the
rows of the matrix won't be wrapped in the output.

Hope it helps.
