CSV Issues

Hello,
I'm working on a script which collects some data and puts into a csv
file which could be exported to excel.
so far so good, I'm able to do what I described.
When I run the script for the second time after a certain period of
time the results should appear next to the results of the last run,
I'm unable to make a new column when the script is run after the first
time.
Ideally I would like to have an output which looks like this.
1/20 1/27
we.py we.py
gh.py gj.py <- Indicating tht the file has changed
fg.py fg.py

Please help me out.
Thanks

Try something like this:
>>import csv
f = open("/tmp/data.csv", "rb")
reader = csv.reader(f)
headings = reader.next()
headings
['1/20']
>>rows = []
for row in reader:
.... rows.append(row)
....
>>rows
[['we.py'], ['gh.py'], ['fg.py']]
>>f.close()
headings.append("1/27")
rows[0].append("we.py")
rows[1].append("gj.py")
rows[2].append("fg.py")
f = open("/tmp/data.csv", "wb")
writer = csv.writer(f)
writer.writerow(headings)
writer.writerows(rows)
f.close()
Regards
Lutz
