Creating a text file comma delimited

Try as I might, I can not seem to create a text file with the following
attributes.

Numerical value, numerical value, text value, numerical value Numerical
value, numerical value, text value, numerical value Numerical value,
numerical value, text value, numerical value .......................

I will be reading from lists that already exist and should have no
problems.

What I am trying to do is create a file that when read by MS Excel will
import easily with comma delimited spaces. Now this file will have a
mix of numerical values and text.

I have no problem creating a file with multiple ColumnForm[] numeric,
but I can not figure how to place a comma between them.

What I am getting is ...

Numerical value numerical value text value numerical value Numerical
value numerical value text value numerical value Numerical value
numerical value text value numerical value .......................


This should be easy, right? I checked DejaNews and the MathSource, read
countless pages and I know I am missing something easy.

Any help would be appreciated.
