It doesn't work for a 2D array, because the second parameter of the WriteAllLines funtion must be a 1D array. To write a 2D array to a file, have a look at the first answer of this question:[^]

Thanks, I am able to get the output in a text file now. But the orientation is not as desired. How can I get the output in a tabular format?

For a string[][] or a string[,]?

Try this:
StringBuilder outputBuilder = new StringBuilder();
for (int i = 0; i < ArrayName.GetLength(0); i++)
for (int j = 0; j < ArrayName.GetLength(1); j++)
outputBuilder.Append(ArrayName[i, j]);
if (j != ArrayName.GetLength(1) - 1)

the entries are of variable length in both the columns
i was looking to have them arranged in a tabular manner like

Array1 Array2
wqqwqwq | eyuyuiyuy
dsdsdsds | youyuiyuiuyiuyiuy
jkljlkjlkjlkjljl | 9089898djdidkkd
even here the output is not coming as desired :(

I'm fine even if there are no separators like the === and| used here
but i do need the second column to start from the same point in every row
currently the output is jagged like this

wqqwqwq eyuyuiyuy
dsdsdsds youyuiyuiuyiuyiuy
jkljlkjlkjlkjljl 9089898djdidkkd
