First, fix the unmatched quotes in the last part of exp. exp = {"I do not", "understand", "this"} Use Riffle to insert a linebreak in between each part, and then use StringJoin to combine into a single string. withbreaks=Riffle[exp, "\n"] text=StringJoin[withbreaks] Export["filename.txt", text] I like to use SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]] before importing/exporting, so that the directory is the same place where the working notebook is saved.
