It appears that you want the output file to have one table followed immediately by another. If so, Export["myfile.dat", Join@@ListA] will do the trick Something a little fancier would be sep=Table["",{Dimensions[First@ListA][[2]]}]; Export["myfile.dat", Join@@(Append[#, sep]&/@ListA)] This will write a blank line after each table in the resulting file.
