The first parameter to the 'CFileDialog' is FALSE/TRUE to say whether it is Open/Save Dialog. After executing 'DoModal' you can get the file name thru the function 'GetPathName'.

I think that you mis understood me.  The code that I have will create a file by using dialog boxes. I wanted to know how to store the data into the file that the user created.  Reminder I am creating a dialog based program.  I wanted to store numbers and  strings into the file.

Use the serialize functionality. Lookup the Serialize method & CArchive classe and also topics on serialization.

Serialization works with your document. So, if you have a good document-view architecture, then serialization is the best way to go for 'Saving & Opening files'.
