Sending data to another file from test file!

I am trying to send the data (in the following code case, test name or something) to another file using fs module of javascript. However, I seem to be unsuccessful for some reason. Can anybody help me figure this out?

const { test, expect } = require('@playwright/test');
var fs = require('fs');

async function appendToFile() {

    await test.beforeEach(async ({ page }) => {
        await page.goto('/example-4');
    await test('should display the name of the most recently hovered item', async ({ page }, testInfo) => {
        const box4ItemsList = await page.waitForSelector('[data-cy=box-4-items-list]');
        const secondChild = await box4ItemsList.$(':nth-child(2)');
        await secondChild.hover();
        const box4SelectedName = await page.waitForSelector('[data-cy=box-4-selected-name]');
        const selectedNameText = await box4SelectedName.innerText();
        expect(selectedNameText).toEqual('Option Two');
        console.log("Hello", testInfo.status)

        try {
            await fs.appendFile('mynewfile1.txt', 'Hello content!', (err) => {
            if (err) {
              console.error('Error appending to file:', err);
            console.log('Data appended successfully!');
          } catch (err) {
            console.error('Error appending to file:', err);


The output:

Running 1 test using 1 worker
retry_folder/test_3.spec.js:14:11 › should display the name of the most recently hovered item
Hello passed
Data appended successfully!
  1 passed (3.5s)

Your help is highly appreciated!
