One way is to write your data to a string, then write the string to your
file.  For example,

Generate some data:-

	data = Random[] & /@ Range[25]

Convert them to a string with special formatting:-

	str = StringJoin[ToString[FromCharacterCode[64 + #]], " = ",
ToString[data[[#]]], "\t"] & /@ Range[Length@data]

And write them to a file:-

	outu = OpenWrite["temp.txt"];
	SetOptions[outu, PageWidth -> Infinity];
      	Write[outu, OutputForm[str]];
      ) & /@ Range[5]
