Rows and columns are for humans so I am going to assume your question means you want to format the text in a human readable way.

If you want to format text you are going to need to mark up your text with something like HTML or XML or write a program to display your text file the way you want it.
Throw a little karma my way. What goes around comes around.

Just print a comma after each item and a lineshift at the end of the row. It really is as simple as that. The result is a CSV file, which is standard input for Excel.
