Plain text files by themselves do not contain any font information. You need to add extra information for that. Decide upon a file format which supports fonts like rtf, html, odf, pdf etc... and use that for your file.

What file format is this? Plain text files do not have a concept of styling text in any way.

Also, what do you mean by "attribute"? Would this be text in the file contents, or something else (like document attributes)?

Just to state the obvious, you're aware that "add" is not a method in FileWriter, right?

Its a CSV format file. Here attribute i mean a "Column Label Name" which is getting retrieved from the database.

CSV does not support text styling. If you want something that opens in Excel and which supports text styling, you can use the Apache POI library to create XLS files.
